Maybe you are so responsible a driver that always remember to drive and behave reasonably on the road. No driving drunk, no over-speed, no tailgating...But it’s sometimes so inevitable when you meet those crazy...suddenly you hear a car honking it's horn behind you. You look in your rear view mirror and it almost looks like the person behind you is riding on your rear bumper. Yes, you are tailgated. How can you avoid the tailgaters?

Here are some tips to help you avoid this situation:

1.Never pump your brakes in an attempt to tell the tailgater he is too close to you.(He knows that already!) If you pump your brakes the tailgater will become desensitized to your braking and might hit you if you suddenly had to stop,

2.Slow down slightly and look for the first opportunity to move out of the way of the tailgater if you are traveling at the speed limit, or going with the flow. So the tailgater can pass you safely. The only place where you want a tailgater to be is in front of you!.

3.Move to an outside lane (not the shoulder) and allow faster traffic to pass. In most places, faster traffic moves in the inner lanes (the "fast lanes") and slower traffic in the outer lanes (the "slow lanes"). Moving to this lane will also give you a chance to pull off onto the shoulder (if one is available) in case you need to pull out of traffic completely.

4.If someone is really tailgating you and you feel unsafe, take the first right turn you can. Resume your route when the impatient motorist has passed.

5.Slow down and encourage the tailgater to pass if you are on a two-lane road where passing is permissible and you're already going as fast as you are comfortable going. Waving someone forward is generally considered acceptable on country roads.

6.Find alternate routes. If you notice that the route you take to get wherever you're going is a constant source for tailgating or other road rage, it might be safer to find another way to go, not to mention much less stressful.
