I pulled in the right lane and he followed me, stayed behind me for a few mins and pulled off at the next exit. Guess he was just checking my out of state plates, found nothing wrong and went on his way.
    I'm guessing he was looking for a DUI.

    Maybe trying to read your license plate. Not excusing the unsafe distance but that's the only reason I'd get close. Usually the public drives 50 in a 55 when police are behind them, while we're going to the highest priority call that doesn't warrant emergency traffic.
    Necropost much?

She was tailgating me so close that I could tell what color eye liner she had! NO NOT REALLY, BUT, She was dangerously close and if I had to slam on my brakes, she would have....no doubt...rear ended me.
    My #1 pet peeve is tailgaters and #2 is LEFT LANE HOGS!!

    Two reasons I might get close -

    (1) I need you to get out of my way so I get get to where I need to be.

    (2) I want to read your license plate or the sticker on it.

    I drove that truck when I was 17. I am twice that age now. It seemed pretty funny when I was that age. Im glad I never got in trouble. Thanks for noticing my post, I read much and write little. Have a great day

    So... Based on your limited posts, why are you trying so hard to be confronted?

    I used to drive an old diesel truck that would blow smoke clouds when I accelerated. When I had someone tailgating me, I would slow down and then floor it back up to the speed limit. It never took more than twice to make anyone back off. One night I did that to a car tailgating me, and sure enough they backed off and then passed me. It was a sheriff, he did not pull me over, I felt like an *sshole, but a lucky one.

    To see if you're black, so we can pull you over.
