When someone is rude, whether driving, and showing no respect to his fellow motorists, or doing something so stupid, like tailing too close, or forcing his way to get pass, or passing at a crazy speed, anger is a human reaction. His recklessness could cause an accident. Maybe I have seen too many movies, or have read too many news articles about road rage. Maybe I just want to get home safely, and don't have the time to spend with a fool. I might curse in the car, and call the other guy an idiot, but I keep it inside my car. If a fool is trying to pass me, I let him pass. I don't want to be near a fool when I'm driving, and I think, Good riddance, when he is gone.
I totally agree. If I am (theroreticaly) going 100mph in a 55mph zone and someone crowds my rear bumper I would let them pass. It is much better to have them in front of you as opposed to behind you. I have noticed that the repeat offenders are giant pick-ups and SUVs They will ride our rear bumpers then when there is a chance to pass with the two lane highway clear for a mile (even if you slow and move to the right shoulder) they will not pass! They do not want to pass you. They want you to speed-up. It is some kind of "control, I am bigger and more important" thing.
