Used to be that the shoulders of the road were gravel. If I felt I was being tailgated for no reason I would slow down a bit, get the right side wheels onto the gravel, then floor the gas pedal. Gravel flew, the tailgater disappeared. 'Course I was driving a souped-up 1957 Chev convertible with a 301 Cube engine, T-10 four speed, and big tires.

Never had the same tailgater in the time I took the same route at the same time of day for two years!

So, they forgot their manners in 2 years.
All Y'all are missing the point. Tailgating cannot be fixed.

If I followed some of the suggestions in this thread my tow car would look real, I mean really bad.

Ciderdog could set up those paintball guns right out the back of that Wrangler. You can do some amazing things with wireless electronics these days.

Um...wut?
One miss-aimed paint ball on a windshield would obscure vision. Not nifty at all!
I think the whole idea has gone far astray here.
Okay, ev one rant on. Pound yer fists. Are they pink yet? Honk yer Hadleys. Feel better now? I knew you could!

The whole thread is venting and satire. I dont think anyone here actually advocates doing any of these things. My original post about paintball guns said as much.

Many years ago a friend, his wife, and their baby were out for a ride in their convertible when it became apparent the diaper needed changing. They didn't have spares in the passenger area so the wife just raised the diaper into the airflow above the windshield. Unfortunately the "loaded" diaper got away and smacked into the windshield of a following car. It did stick for awhile, I was told.

We had s nasty can not see anything but the windshield tailgators last week.

Low to the ground bmw me thinks.

In our old jeep we spot an alligator (tire chunks) that were huge but would fit under us...barely.

Could have easily drove around it as I seen it way ahead...but that smacked of effort...

The attentive driver behind us never knew what hit them but the look on their face and reaction priceless.

Stayed way back after that...

Camping World has tag frames that say "I can't go any faster, I am being towed"
