Would it be wrong?

So.. Before I get started, I just want to say this is me thinking out loud... I have not done this, nor do I condone it...

If you're like me, you like to keep a decent cushion between you and the car in front of you.. Well, I just got back from my 2000 mile trip and I have just about had it with inconsiderate drivers...

During our pass thru Chicago I was at my wits-end with drivers cutting me off and jamming themselves into my cushion and the GF says to me... "Where's the egg's?".. Her suggestion was to start lobbing eggs at cars who cut us off and such.. We even mused about how fun it would be if they had open sunroofs...

So.. Would it be wrong to lob eggs at the idiots who cut us off and make us jam on our brakes because, god forbid, they get stuck behind an RV?

My dad was a long haul trucker, and in Chicago was cut off by a blonde woman in a red ford convertible. He had to jam on the brakes and jack-knifed the rig. He spent nearly three weeks in the hospital...then died. Chicago drivers are insane...and..they never caught this woman.

More fun than eggs, might be hanging a couple of tires over you front bumper? If somebody can see nothing but those tires in their rear view, they may develop an idea you really don't care if they are there or not?

You make a strong case for dash-mount cameras.

I've been using a dash mounted camera for 2 years. Just in case!

I have been cut in the MH many times but you said Chicago. I lived there for a while some time back and that is just the way they drive in Chicago. It doesn't matter if you are driving 16 wheels or a uni-cycle. They will cut you off as soon as there is daylight between you and the guy your following. Just get used to it or don't drive in Chicago.

Get the Frustrations Out

I have been leaving that space in front of me for over 25 Years, don't worry, if they cut in on that space make more, although you feel your going backwards, just start to identify these cars that cut in front of you, chances are you will see them down the road, they are not making any better time then you.

See if you can hook up a tube to your windshield washers spout and face it towards the front. When someone cuts in front of you, you can squirt them, they wont even know its coming from you, just something to have a few laughs.

If you want to be evil, use your imagination as to what you can fill your windshield washer fluid reserve with, syrup, food coloring,

Yep, it's wrong and probably illegal.

I used to get really annoyed when that happened to me while driving a car and (I hate to say it, but) it resulted in me driving much more aggressively in some sort of crazy goal of ridding the road of idiots I guess.

When I started driving the coach in 07, my entire attitude changed. Now, I'm not worried as much about dolts invading my cushion. I just give them even more room and hope they don't have a dolt cousin waiting to plow into me somewhere down the road where I can't anticipate their stupidity.

Now, if someone really cuts me off (as opposed to just slipping into the front of my cushion)... the air horn gets to scream at them... just to let them know that I know that they're an idiot.
