to be honest, i love to see their reactions. it may be worth it even if i have to take a hit at some point. i wouldnt tell the cop that i was teaching the guy a lesson.

Just for the record - moving violations go to the state's general fund, cell phone tickets go to the local town. With municipal budgets being strapped, I'd expect an enforcement blitz to be ongoing.

"If you are being tailgated, chances are it's YOU who are doing something wrong."

Give me a break! When I'm in the right lane, still doing more than the speed limit, and somebody is trying to kiss my bumper, they've got a problem, not me.

I get so angry when people hog the left lane and stop people from passing. I usually flash them several times but usually they are either too stubborn or so oblivious to their surroundings that they fail to notice that I'm flashing. Often of course, a cell phone is involved. I really think that the main problem is that the people just can't focus on more than one thing at a time. Extra things like periodically checking in the rear view, keeping an eye around them to see what's going on in case they need to make a split second lane change or hit the brakes? These things are too much information for the average human brain to process. Their brains are fully occupied with the tasks of breathing and pressing the gas to get from point a to point b and possibly thinking about whether they forgot to set up american idol on DVR. It's the same thing with people walking on the crowded sidewalk. They will stop dead in their tracks without the slightest concern to whether someone is walking behind them. One thing I will not do is "brake check" someone behind me. I'd do it, but I figure there's a pretty good chance they will plow into my car--not worth it.

Reckless and discourteous driving should be enforced more stringently and this includes use of cell phones.
