few months ago while coming back from the bmw london cruise at around 9 i was on the 401 a black sunfire was coming up on me at 120ish. i went in to the right lane let them pass then merged behind the vehicle they slowed to less then a hundred(in the fast lane). i then had to pass on the right. this happened 5 or 6 times each time they would either not move over or speed match me and hangout in my blind spot! it was really ****ed up! I ended it by just taking off and getting away from this vehicle.

Hahaha I do the same. Most of the times it's some punk driving a 4 cylinder beater. I just wish I could see their faces when they hear the V8 scream and see you taking off, buuh byee

Funny thing is, I slow down to normal speeds afterwards and sometimes when they catch up with you, they never pass or even get close to tail gate you again cause they don't really feel like looking at your face. Shame and respect...

in the fast lane? speed up or move over and let them pass. Slow lane, ignore them as they tail, either they get really pissed and you can laugh at them and/or they eventually back off realizing you aren't going to move. if you let them "get your goat" you lose either way. Don't let someone who's in a rush ruin your day. it isn't worth getting all worked up over. Remember, it's not your problem, it's his; why are you making his, yours?

lol last time I was in that mood I got burned with 177 in a 100 up in Bracebridge on the way to the cottage Luckily it was before the street racing law came into effect. I ended up beating the ticket, too....

So the OP was in the slow lane and the guy was tailing that close I would say he is an ass too. I hate drivers who who tail gate, not only do they put my property and life on the line but everyone elses that are on the road. You can drive fast with out being like that. It's drivers like this that have caused the new street racing laws that ruin spirited driving for the rest of us. Too bad you don't have his plate to call him out.

Oh dude if there is no way for him to get around or away that is a 1 km decrease in speed for every Km he tailgates, that just smokes losers like that, and yes that is the best part.
No need for anger cause his head is nearly going to explode and seeing it happen in the rear view would be awesome.
Don't worry be happy you own an bimmer.

You know whats funny, He neglects to mention that he was the one who ripped up my ass to begin with, and that he remained in the pass lane. To top it off, i never at one point got frustrated, except to enjoy every second of driving. As for the kick in the balls, I would like to see this happen. I got to say, this honestly made my day....

Nah man. The last thing I'm in the mood for is a fight on the Internet. This isn't going anywhere.

But for the record, I don't know if the guy has mistaken me for another vehicle saying "I started it". But I never tail people. I know too many people who hit their brakes in that situation and care about my car too much to toy with that idea.

Oh, also wondering why that ****in thing is so quick lol.

I dont let tailing bother me I just go from 100 to 60 or in the city from 60-70 to 40

Now in the passing lane yes I move and quickly you can tell when someone is coming up fast, common sense.

So you tailgated him out of calmness? Or were you just trying to read the fine print on his plate frame?

Good... mature of you.

He could well me mistaking you for someone else, or could just be trying to cover up his doucheness... either way, tailgating is bullshit, especially when you're cruising in the slow lane.
