When I was taught to drive I was told to never worry about anyone or anything behind me...(unless I was backing up).

That's a good one Frank. When we get our RV I'll have to make one.

In addition a water jet from the roof might be a nice addition. I remember when one of my washer fluid jets was misadjusted and it would shoot over the roof and hit the car behind me

Well it is humorous to a point. Dumping a tank seems excessive compared to the infraction.

They do make electric valves nowdays that would make it easier to install the valve.

We often had to go on ranch roads made of "taller mud".

Back on highway you are loaded.

If a tailgator is present look for and use small pot holes that will result in chunks of mud falling off.

Works wonders...

Taller mud...

As you walk on it you get taller as it is high in clay and extremely sticky.

Very nasty stuff.

I do know it is something many of us have wished to do.. ANd there is a bumpersticker someone sells with that theme.

For the person who said the punishment is kind of much for the offense.

If you stop fast and he hits you and ruptures the tank in question... Well.. Re-think.

And I'm still LAMO over this thread.. Thanks folks.

In most parts of Texas, you will notice that natives will pull over and drive on the shoulder (which is usually paved and quite broad) in order to let faster traffic go by.

I believe this is an artifact of the oil patch, where one slow truck backing up traffic can cost a lot of other truckers time which = $$.

I do it in the car and especially in the RV. Its just "driving friendly".

I put a fake dump valve (in the open position) on the back bumper of my 5th wheel and a bumper sticker that says--------Cation!!! Poo Poo may blur your vision.

Actually dumping the tanks might be a little extreme for some, but it'd be nuthin' to install a windshield washer pump on the back somewhere... creative use of a little food coloring and you could fill it with whatever color liquid you want.

Don't red and green make a particularly nasty shade of brown?

Just a thought...

I totally agree:

HOWEVER:

DW and I have been discussing installing a remote control (and in this day and age there is no reason not to go "Blue Tooth") Paint-ball gun so as to pass along our displeasure with the fine folks who pass and the try to see how closely the can cut in front of us, also for those folks who haven't learned what the turn-signal lever is for, etc. No reason we can't have a model for the back as well.

DW wants to have "Bomb Site and color selection for the severity of the infractions, but I haven't gone quite this RADICAL.

I guess I have been guilty of doing some tailgating from time to time.

Why would someone drive about 10 over the speed limit when the road is open and about 10 under the speed limit when there is oncoming traffic?
