No, they don't want to pay taxes, especially for anything that someone else may use more than they will. That's it in a nutshell.

People do not know how to drive here, IMO~! I've been tail-gated so many times it is pitiful~! I can't go faster due to whoever is in front of me or beyond them, plus I am going the speed limit~!

Going the speed limit isn't the best excuse, though.

Excuse for what? Being tailgated by an idiot who can't figure out how to go around?

If you're being tailgated in the far left lane, that's your cue to move to the right. If you're being tailgated in the right lane(s) then okay, yes, that person is a stupid driver lol

Not always. If you, the person in front of you, and the tailgating idiot, are all going 60, and the right lane is going 50, you want to move over and slow down just so the tailgater can tailgate the person in front of you? It would be better to slow down a little in front of the tailgater, to give him a heart attack, to reduce the number of idiots on the road.

Relax. They're just trying to test their air bags. The rain gives them their excuse. "It was too wet to stop that fast."

If you're in the right lane, then I forgive you lol. They're just terrible people. I would never do that. I only tailgate people going 55 in the left lane in a 55 zone.

Or you put your turn signal on too soon and they are on your tail still. I have to put my arm out the window to let them know when I am turning. Sometimes that matters and sometimes it doesn't. They drive a lot better and safer in Florida....for the most part.
