Traffic is never fun. That being said, there's no reason to make traffic worse for anyone else. Tailgating is right up there with barely doing the speed limit in the fast lane, which is most likely when said tailgating is happening. Now I don't know about you, but if someone tailgates me, I will gradually slow down just to be a dick of equal value. Believe me, I'm not in a hurry to get anywhere.

The problem is, as you see above, when you get so close to the vehicle in front of you, you can't anticipate hazards in the road ahead. Go around, chill out, and stop driving with your entitled sense of ego. Traffic sucks for everyone.
