Silly talon

Ok, so CRAZY story. Not to long ago i was driving to St. Louis to a concert with my old lady and had the cruise set on like 85 like normal and just blew by this crappy talon that had been lowered but he didnt put the camber correct kit on it yet so just looked dumb. well like 5 min later this guy just comes up on my and its no joke RIGHT on my rear bumper so after about a mile of this the old lady is like.. just break check him and wake his A$$ up so i did and anyone that has an SVTF knows how good our breaks work well this kid jumps into the other lane and of course (crappy lowing job) starts to spin all over the road and flies threw the grass into on coming traffic and I make sure no one was on the other side and he was ok than just put my cruise back on and keep on going.. Is this mean or should people drive safer??
(I am going to get ya)

If you ride my ass. I'll give you about 30 sec to back off before I break check you. There's always someone who argues that it's wrong to break check people, but whatever. I'm not going to let anyone ride my ass, they can either go around or wait at a safe distance, there's never a reason for tailgating.

at 85...I think that guy was pushing his car lol. You shouldve just downshifted and slowed down without the breaks showing to the actual speed limit. But i think what you did was ed up.

I only brake check cars that are worth more than mine, and only if they are truly riding my ass. I brake checked a G35 from 70 to 35 on the thruway one time.

Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. The father of the year award goes to WUG btw.

Who'd would get the ticket if he HAD hit you and the cops were called. Did he have a witness in the car with him?

Yup, that's what I'll usually do, just downshift a gear (or two, depending on the speed) and slow way the hell down...

Yeah, what you did was stupid, but oh well. I would have just switched lanes, or slowed way the down until he passed.

Man, when I see someone coming up behind me I get the hell out of their way. A cop with his emergencies or a bozo doing 40 over the limit, it's no different. In both cases, they're on their way to an accident, the cop to clean up, the bozo to cause one.

I've never brake checked anyone, brake checking implies the person behind you is paying attention, I don't care how stupid or bad someone else is, I'm not going to risk getting in accident because I don't approve of someone else's driving.

The idiot is probably filing a claim with his insurance company that he got run off the road and he's probably got the same insurance carrier I do.

Wrecks are serious, they can hurt you, hurt you all the way to dead.
