to the annoying new yorker driving behind me...

NO! I will not speed up. I will not move over. Im driving my big old jeep down these back roads because it helps me relax and think about life for a bit. I will go as fast as i so choose to be fit. There is no need for you and your little mercedes to be goin 15 mph over the speed limit. If you dont like how im driving get back on the highway and head back to new york. Stop your damn honking and flashing your lights trying to get me to go faster like i didnt realize how slow i was going. Its a jeep it aint running no relay and trying to honk at me will only make me slow down a$$___

sorry that guy was driving behind me like that for 10 miles and i had to vent

Been there. I have a trick that never fails to back them off, but I can't say as I can recommend it.

If driving around with the top off in that situation, it may help to flip pennies waaaaaay up in the air and catch them. It's a nice stress reliever. If one accidentally gets caught in the wind and pings of some jackass's grill/hood/windshield... oops? Guess they shouldn't have been riding your bumper.

You were going way too slow buddy! What was I supposed to do?!

juuuust kidding

It seems like there is a much higher concentration of aggressive idiot drivers now-a-days. Even down here in Bama.

I might get flamed for this but if you are just out cruising to be cruising then why not pull over and let somebody pass. When I am driving my jeep I try to stay out of the way, especially on the interstate (I have a 4 banger auto, so it's not a speed demon). But I also know how it feels to be behind some jackwagon that goes 1 mph under the speed limit and won't let anybody around. I don't care if they are in a wheel chair, if you are holding up traffic get out of the way.

Do you wait for the next traffic light and approach them about their driving habits while carrying a shovel handle?

I agree totally with Fizzgiz. As someone who has been riding motorcycles since the late 60's I have learned that there are some real attention getters that can get a person off your ass. Most states on most roads a driver is legally allowed to go about 5-10 mph under the speed limit if needed. This includes some interstates. I see it often on I-94 in Wisconsin. The law goes by them and doesn't give them a second thought. But also like on a motorcycle we may have the right of way, so we are in the right. The question is do we want to be dead right? There's a lot of crazies in cars with guns, and they don't always have that bad guy look. Above all be safe.

Yeah, I usually let them pass if they're flippin out. You never know if they have a good reason to be in a hurry, and if they don't, well, let THEM go wrap themselves around a tree if they want. I have seen it and know others who have too. Or at the least, you find them a ways down the road with the flashing lights, lol. That's always sweet justice.
I've only done brake checks to those guys who creep up slowly and stay with you like they want to be sitting on you lap or something.
I had some real winner fly up on my rear and flash his lights and wail his horn non-stop a few months ago. It was my first 3hr road trip in the Jeep and I was on a two lane highway. Coming down this hill, I did the Jeeper "Pick Up Speed So I Can Make It Up The Hill" thing. I was in the right lane of course, which is still a strange feeling for me, lol. I came up on this 18er and moved to left lane to not loose speed. Funny, I never made it past 1/3 of the truck. So this pick-up comes flying up behind me screaming like that, and I'm like what?! Where do want me to go?! He kept it up the whole way up the hill, and I wasn't about to slow down to get behind the rig on my right. Then coming down I was finally able to pass the rig and move over. Well I didn't do that quick enough for him, and he almost pushed me off the road. I know I was a LITTLE slow, but c'mon changing lanes in a lfted, big-tired Jeep isn't smoooth, it's more of an adventure. Just glad no one was hurt and it wasn't in my younger, crazy, drinkin days. I would've knocked him in the ditch and laughed that he coulndn't get out cause he wasn't driving a Jeep.

I never get mad at the ones going the speed limit, but people who do 10 under chap my cheeks. I'm on the road all day for work, and I'd like to get home at a reasonable hour. Starting earlier is not an option. I fix stuff, and it refuses to break to fit my schedule. Some of it is 150 miles from home. Getting stuck behind a sightseer going under the limit can turn a 3 hour trip into 4.

If you're not doing the speed limit and have a convoy of cars behind you, chances are you're going too slow. Pull over and let 'em pass. You never know, they might be working like me. Overtime is okay, but a life is better.

Arrow Enjoy the ride

I am from Boston, so yes I will agree NY sucks! HAHA but I have also been the fast driver and now I am the Jeep speed limit guy. The fix is simple, nothing is personal on the road so don't take it personal, unless you are a police officer on duty don't think you must enforce the speed limit ,and if you want to drive slow and enjoy the ride as I often do well isn't it much more enjoyable without some jackwagon on your tail? so let them pass and enjoy your ride.
Oh and for the record Boston drivers have places to be so we drive with efficiency and a purpose, we take Sunday drives in NH or RI not Boston, just say'in
