Have any of you been targeted and followed in your Camaro?
 
I had a fool follow me last night for 2 hours, in the rain, on I-55 South and he wouldn't go away. Every exit I used to lose him he took as well and kept with me going back onto the expressway time and again. I did that 3 times and this jerk kept following. Nothing happened earlier so I can't think of anything I might have done to piss somebody else off but this dude followed me from Chicago to Decatur Illinois.

This was a 180 mile trip that usually takes almost 3 hours. This person had to be up to something. A few times he got way too close to my car and I couldn't make any sense of what he was doing but it was creepy to say the least.

Has this happened to any of you? If so what did you do?

Would you have called the police?

To finally get away I deployed counter measures...

Not in the camaro but I did have someone follow me once inexplicably. I got to my town, took side streets just to verify they were following me. Then once I was sure I just drove to my local police station and pulled in. Guy drove away! Very strange and unnerving. Harder to do though when you are away from home and don't know where police stations are.

Yeah it will put you on alert. The only reason I didn't call the cops was because there was nothing I could really say other than I was being followed. All I had was suspicion.

had a cop follow me once for about 2 miles. guess after checking my plates and failing to observe me doing anything to warrant being pulled over he finally went somewhere else.

Since there's only a rest area just before Decatur and a long straight stretch I would have done 165 to loose him.

Also you could have saved an hour because its easy to lose people in Champaign....... better yet you could have saved most of that time by going to the police station at 111th and 57. I think you just wanted to see how long he was going to follow you.

I've had many stalkers, they are rarely envious and most are enthused.

Well here's the thing...this dude knew for some time I was aware he was on me and he didn't give up and drive off. He was looking for me to stop. Call it gut instinct but if there is a creepy goof following me I'm in the perfect car to get away.

I launched man and them BMR sway bars held my car down in those turns. For a moment I thought I heard Chewbacca!

I have no idea where the stations are down there. A friend of mine mentioned he probably wanted to see where I'd stop, car thieves or whatever.

How many have followed you?

This is why I can't wait for IL to pass concealed carry. Car jack my ass.

ActNup NY 04-28-2013 04:29 PM

From the sound of that I would say that person either dont have a life or was up to no good. Gotta to be careful now a days. There's a lot of nut jobs not only walking out there, but are also driving as you've experienced.:iono:

RSloth 04-28-2013 04:33 PM

I always keep an eye out for people following me,
I got to know some of the neighboring cars, and ill check and see whos behind me as im driving and if someones suspicious i just take off and use some evasive maneuvers. Id rather have them not knowing where I live.. cause insurance will cover vandalism on a car... But I don't want my family hurt or stuff stolen..

Yup! I've already busted out the Ruger Blackhawk and I'm waiting to reinstate that hand cannon on active duty. Might have to Tomahawk me a criminal and scalp that ****er.


ActNup NY you got that right! This situation has me all creeped out, and rowdy to!

Blk-Ice 04-28-2013 04:44 PM

I think he was probably going the same way as you anyways and realized that he was making you nervous and probably thought it was funny to even follow you when you left the road to try and ditch him. Whenever i have a NON-LEO tail i usually use a few crafty lane changes and put a few rolling roadblock drivers between me and them and THEN i go to warp speed for a mile or so. Problem solved!:biggrin:

Comrando 04-28-2013 05:09 PM

Was it a Prious? :sm0:

For that long of a trip at 2 in the morning? Just to get smoked? I'm not sure about that one Ice.

LuSe4 04-28-2013 05:13 PM

If it happens again call the cops. I would not hesitate if he is exiting and then reentering the highway. Not just a coincidence there and in this day and age you cannot be too cautious in my opinion.

Nah I wish, then it would've been easy. You just toss some raisins or a granola bar out the sunroof and those lesbians will go back to their Barry Manilow records.

Those people are never dangerous, just butch.

Would have called the police for sure. Why be followed for that damn long, and not try to do something about it?

Firefighter 04-28-2013 09:39 PM

Gotta love Florida... People rarely do this shit because many of us pack. I've been carrying in some form or another for 20 years now.

J-Short 04-28-2013 10:00 PM

Should have called the cops. Unfortunatley, they aren't very effective or timely here in CA unless their is some sort of ticket writing

fish907 04-28-2013 11:34 PM

I have a 45 minute drive into Anchorage and the last time I went into town, I was tailed almost the whole way ... by a cop ... in an undercover unit. I knew it was a cop because I saw him on the overpass before he pulled onto the highway and spotted the bars on the front of his vehicle.

I think he may have tagged me at ~80 as I was passing someone, so as soon as I saw him move out, I pulled into the right lane and camped there at 65. This guy followed me for almost the entire trip, coming very close multiple times. Other vehicles were passing me left and right, too. I had a pos Celica slow down to about 40 mph, forcing me to pass him at a very careful 65, only to have him pull ahead and cut me off before his exit ... cop did nothing but continue to stick to my tail. As an aside, I get this a lot if I drive in the slow lane. Cars routinely slow down if I'm going 65, presumably to get a kick of out me passing them.

Really ruined which is otherwise a very enjoyable drive into town. What infuriated me the most though was that he singled me out, ignoring every other vehicle that sped past me (some easily at 90+, obviously not knowing he was an undercover because you can't tell from behind). When I moved to the middle lane, it got even worse, with vehicles on both sides passing me. He finally passed me and got off the highway at the last exit before town. I sent a hard stare his way as he went by, but he never looked over. I did catch a hint of a clenched jaw, though, but maybe that was wishful thinking.

Funny thing is, I have only one speeding ticket in the last 12 years. I rarely speed on the highway, and usually only briefly to pass people. I do my fair share of spirited driving, but only when it is safe, and never on the highway, as it is patrolled incredibly hard by APD and they do not write warnings.
