Tail gaters how to stop them
 
Hi any ideas on how to stop tail gaters without wrecking your own car. So far left foot breaking has best results for stopping them. Any better ideas

Ignore them.

Move your rear mirror up so you can't see them, out of sight out of mind.

Move with the speed of traffic in the slow lane. Don't stick out like a sore thumb trying to go 55mph in a 65mph zone. Personally I get better mileage with the wall of cars in front of me doing 70-75mph keeping back two seconds than trying to go slow on my own. If you find a semi you're golden, people know they aren't going to go any faster and pass most of the time.

Roll coal on them.

When did this forum fill up with trolls and stop being helpful?

AFAIK, they're trying to be amusing. That's not trolling in my book.

I've been known to occasionally throw on my hazards to encourage people to pass me on roads with passing lanes. On roads without them, I stick to the speed limit, which thankfully is ~50mph on most around here.

Weelllll.... In another life I might have connected a toggle switch to my reverse lights. But I would not suggest doing something that might be construed as illegal.
