    I introduced two friends of mine (both Toyota nuts) to each other tonight so one could get parts for his trail truck from the other. I was on my way back to my home town with the cruise set at 65. A car passes me, and slows down to 60. I leave the cruise on and just go on by them. Three miles later, they scream by waving middle fingers.

    Five minutes after that, the cruise is still on and they're doing 60 again. Once again, left the cruise alone and just slip by. They then proceed to speed up and get so close to the back of the truck that I can't see their lights because they're below my tailgate...I blip the brakes to no avail, turn on the backup lights to try and get them off my ass but these people were determined to piss me off, I believe they actually got closer after that.

    Being in a bad mood, I swerved to the shoulder, jammed the brakes, and got behind them so I could get their plate # (with my high beams and KC's blazing of course)...then I called the cops and told them my location and the tag # and that there was an erratic driver on the road.

    They got pulled over by two cars in less than 10 minutes...and I feel kinda bad...:o

    hell I wouldn't have thought the call the cops like that(though its probably the best thing youc ould have done_, I would have done something stupid like brake check them and piss them off more.

    I have a criminal record for taking the law into my own hands in a similar situation. Nowadays, I let Johny Handcuff deal with those issues. You did good, Mikey!!:thumb:

    Yeah, if my KC's weren't below my bumper I'd have done it but they were pretty big 'tards and probably would have just rear ended me. Not that I would mind seeing my hitch cut a hole in their hood...I just didn't want to break my lights.

    Ok
    You definitely did the wisest course of action. :D

    I don't see how most of these assholes have gotten their license, it amazes me how many people don't know the proper way to handle a 4 way stop. :mad:

    I think you did real good..best way to handle it.



    of course i have been known to slam on the brakes and come to a complete stop in the fast lane on I-5.......



    Thank goodness i have grown up since then..now i just ignore them for the most part..

    situations like this make my exhaust brake in my dodge MORE than worth it. i downshift a gear or two and let the clutch out with the Exhaust brake on... they dont get brake lights but they do get brown skid marks... then i can hit the brake lights with the brake controller... while using the fuel pedal... its quite confusing....

    oh, i dont think you did anythign wrong... i would have made sure they rear ended you while you were avoiding the dog in the road. you hit the brakes so fast because you didnt know they were there..... ;)
