Actually no I wouldn't agree. You should be anticipating some asshat doing exactly that. When I approach an intersection where I see cars waiting to turn, I slow down and hover the brake for that very reason. It's also the reason I usually drive only in the left lane as most asshat's have enough common sense about them to turn on to the far right lane.


I know it's infuriating, there's days where I want to go and get a '78 Lincoln and weld a cowcatcher to the front of it and just blast everyone that does stupid **** in front of me.

But in the end, my DD is a little sports car, and I figure I probably wouldn't fare so well against most vehicles on the road even though it has a 5 star front impact rating.

I try to drive as though there's a bubble around my car and if anyone encroaches on my space, I do everything to get them out of it.
I don't feel the need to be first anymore. I know when to back off. And if someone rides my ***, I progressively go slower and slower.

You could also push people out of the way, and old people on electric scooters

LOL Canada must be different. This has kinda happened to me before, except I was in the car in front. I was like 13 and my mom was driving... she saw some cop car on the side of the road with a sign on top of it (she thought it was a TV and was staring at it duurrr) meanwhile traffic ahead comes to a stop, I yell at her STOP! She puts the brakes to the floor and BLAMMO! Guy slams us in the poopar. His fault. Following too closely.

I ****ing hate people. I have been in 6 wrecks that weren't my (or the driver I was riding with's) fault in the last 5-6 years. Never been in one that was my fault. Hell, I got slammed up the poopar at 40-45 mph when my S197 had <1000 miles on it. Still had the dealer plates. FFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-

its called boxing in, 2 cars working together, one speeds up goes infront of the victim, another pulls up next to you, then the one in front slams his brakes, usually catching the victim unaware.

great little insurance fraud trick going around
