Driver uses "powermove" to stop tailgating... now

Posted Feb 21st 2013 12:45PM


They say that wearing a pink tie is a power move, but so is stopping your car in the middle of an entrance ramp and giving a tailgater a good, old-fashioned stare down. If all that's true, that makes the unidentified man in this video Mr. Powermove.

Although we can't tell exactly what happened before the dashcam started recording, the well-dressed driver apparently felt he was being followed too closely, so he stopped his car in the roadway, calmly got out and gave our dashcam-wielding driver a stare that will probably help him or her avoid tailgating in the future. Now there are plenty of methods get someone to stop tailgating you, but this could be one of the gutsiest moves we've even seen.

We wouldn't exactly recommend pulling this move (unless you plan on getting run over or provoking a fight), but you can see what transpires in the video below.

I have found a Reflex 12" LED lamp gets the message across very well.

The bestway that I've found to deal with tailgaters is to use my windshield washers. The overspray will hit the vehicle behind you, forcing them to use their wipers. Do it a second time and they usually back off in order to avoid getting their vehicle sprayed. Works like a charm, they don't see it as an aggressive move, and they back off.
