Anti-tailgating

Just wondering if anyone has come up with some sort of anti-tailgating device. I was thinking of something along the lines of a super bright LED light, like what you'd see on an off-roading Jeep or truck, placed above the rear seats, wired to a switch at the centre console or something.

Anyone else have any ideas?

Ignore it as long as you are doing at least the speed limit.

I just downshift using the paddles...that loud barking exhaust usually does the job.

How about move over? I hope none of you are those brake checking a$$holes I see on YouTube. I don't drive right on top of someone, but people that do 1mph more in the left lane need a swift kick in the butt.

Agreed. Life's hard enough without TRYING to be an asshole.

Run a wire to your brake lights tied to a switch. Flip the switch and you brake lights will come on making the car behind you think you just hit your brakes.

That may work but you would be liable if a crash occurs, blinding a driver...

You don't need an extra switch, You can just stab at the brake pedal left foot every so often.

I have seen eyes like a cat in the rear view without losing 1 MPH.
