Getting tailgated by a semi is one of the few things that really piss me off on the road. It's a murder threat, and I don't see how anyone could take it lightly. The only sensible reaction is to drive normally until you can get out of their way. If it started to happen more than once every few years, I'd install cameras and dial them in. Then start pounding on doors... the prosecutor, their company (if applicable), their insurance company. They need to loose their CDL before they kill someone.
Exactly, it really is "I'm in a hurry so speed up before I kill you!". Also, I'm not so sure the badge is any better idea than the missile. Impersonating a police officer is quite a serious charge isn't it?

A semi going 59 doesn't bother me like a loaded semi doing 65+ in the middle lane passing an empty one. Fontana is a pretty big hub area with 3 east west highways and the I-15 all within a few miles radius. Some nights both 2 right lanes are full of rigs.

Who said I'm "impersonating" an officer?

I'm pretty sure that you could make some dumb reason for using that piece of cardboard. Something like I had it glued to my hand by my son and I was just stretching, he just happened to see it and figure I was a cop. Sorry, just a misunderstanding. I mean, its not like he has a siren or some cop lights or anything.

i'll add to the thread-jack........

ever since i installed a CB, truckers don't tailgate me anymore. I guess they see the 4' whip and realize i can call out on channel 9 (emergency channel) pretty easy.

or get a back window sticker that says "tailgate me and i'll call the cops" and have a little graphic of a cell phone.......
