    Default When someone flips you off while driving, what's your response?

    As for me, I tend to tailgate them and follow them to wherever they're going just to scare them -- that is, if I have time on my hands. Sure it's a waste of gas, but it's totally worth it watching the driver get nervous.

    What do you guys normally do?

    I'm oblivious. I'm a pretty good driver though and don't usually do things to piss people off. I've flipped the bird to others though when they are a complete ass or horrible driver. It would be difficult for someone to tailgate me as I don't allow it.

    I think this is odd, its maybe just me but I dont get close enough to pay attention to what people within cars are doing or pay more attention to the car than to the driver, I dont do a lot of city driving or slow traffic jam driving so perhaps that's why.

    It wouldnt bother me, they're an asshole if they are acting like that and I'm glad not to have to take much to do with assholes in the usual run of things.

    If you're close enough to the driver, grab their middle finger and gun the car in hopes of ripping their finger off. Now they can never flip you off with that magic hand again.

    Seems like a lot of effort over some asshole you don't know and will never see again.

    Plus if someone tailgated me like that, I'd just accelerate away and then slam on the brakes to block them from getting past, get out, and lets roll.

    This. Or at most, flip him back.

    If they're continuously aggressive and threatening I then push the oil-slick button, which lays down a nice film for him to learn doing pirouettes using his vehicle.

    If applicable, I stop driving like a total asshole.


    However, it rarely comes up, because I don't tend to drive like a total asshole.

    Flip me off all you want, I am probably not paying much attention to your fingers (or you, for that matter,) lol.

    Why do you have to do anything?
