    Storm is supposed to be over here in the next few hours, but by the end we are to have 5-10" of new snow. I think I am close to 8" here.

    That drives me CRAZY! Normally, I just get out of the way of someone who wants to go faster--I'm normally not a slow-poke on the highway so I'm rarely tailgated. But when it's snowing hard and the highway's aren't plowed, moving from one lane to another can be hazardous, so I just continue driving in the lane in that case. If I end up getting hit from behind, that person is almost automatically "at fault" in my state.....that's the only consolation I have!

    Heh heh....that drives me nuts, too. I usually tap the brakes as a "reminder" to them to back off. And I mean tap - just enough to flash my brake lights. No sense in making myself go into a skid to spite the idiot behind me. And Chlor is right....If they hit me, well I'll see dollar signs spinning around my head instead of stars.

    I hit my brakes as hard as I can so the tailgater hits me. We both spin through several lanes of traffic and crash into the trees. After I regain consciousness, I crawl from my car over to the tailgater's car and say, "Dr. Turi predicted this would happen today."
