Nothing you do, no amount of beeping or light flashing or tailgating or weaving around is going to make me drive faster than I'm already going. Because I'm one of those (apparantly very rare) people who cares if I get points on my license or not. In fact, I think I'll slow down. There, we are both now driving along at X-3 mph. Oh, you're still tailgating me? Fine, we're now both driving at X-6mph. Still at it? X-10 mph, and you still can't overtake me. I'm not in a hurry, and I can keep this up all day, so back off and stop being an obnoxious twat.
Are... are you me? Because this is seriously exactly how I feel when I'm driving along at or just under the speed limit and some giant truck or SUV pulls up right behind me. I'm not going to go faster just because you want me to. Besided, judging by the relative shininess of our cars, I'd hazard that you care significantly more about the appearance of yours and wouldn't actually hit me. Pardon me while I decellerate in advance of this red light, instead of in the preceeding 2 feet.
