How To Cure That Pesky Tailgater

Was browsing an online RV supply website when I came across this little item. If one could extend the cable up to the driver's seat one could readily cure that pesky tailgater of his unsafe driving habits..........I like to help others whenever I can, you know?.......

Think you could run a rubber hose out the back and aim it as his windshield?

Sounds like fun gentlemen but are you sure you want to become part of the problem. Unlike math two negatives do not make a postive.

Thetford used to market a device called a Thermosan. Under the correct conditions, This would pump the black tank contents into the exhaust. I ran their test lab and can assure you the what came out was sterile, but I can also assure you that at low speeds following closely was not pleasant.

How about a lighted sign you could switch on that says "Back off or I'll flush".

You can get in serious trouble for dumping waste on the freeway (Of course the idea is making it hard to type.. I mean it is hard to type while LAMO after all).

But you could dump fresh water.. Odds the idiot would not know the differnce till long after he'd backed off. ONly need a few gallons.

I haven't run into that tailgater problem yet. While driving the roads and freeways/expressways in Texas this might come in handy for those entering the freeway/expressway as they are going so slow and then speed up to pull in front of you at the last minute. Ah, hello. I do like the idea of a bright neon sign/sticker of "watch out or I'm flushing". lol

After thinking for a few minutes, I think adding a 40-second countdown timer display would be good.

Wow. No Texas tailgaters? Where I am in Texas, they're amazingly annoying. I drive the speed limit, and tailgaters stack up behind me, since I'm one of the few left here anymore to whom the speed limit means anything.

Back them Off 1956 Style

For this you could go to Jail.
I mounted a toggle switch on dash, one end connected to #1 sparkplug,
other end to drilled/ taped hole in Exhaust extension pipe, to a Sparkplug.
results where a Large LONG Flame when you kicked it on. used it 3-4 time with great results,, Motor Cycle COPS have very low hummer, 4 days jail, new paint job on Motor Cycle and a new Uniform.

How do consequences for bad behavior equate to becoming "part of the problem"?
