^^^ That is plain suicidal, I'd say. Unless you're driving something really powerful and fast, compared to the guy behind, on a real free way.

I was honk-tailgated by a yellow minibus as I drove up to my office today. The constant honking got on my nerves especially since I wasn't going slow or anything- I guess in the other driver's opinion, the gap between me and the car in front was a little too much for his liking!

I tried ignoring him, but the guy got dangerously close and starting waving his fist and all, so I moved across at the first opportunity. He immediately proceeded to do it to the next guy in front. Either he is a lunatic or had a bad case of loosies, either way, no point messing with such guys!

Ironic end-note: I crossed the idiot again hardly 100m down the road- he was held up by some traffic turning right and my lane was free. Resisted an overpowering urge to roll my window down and *point and laugh* But maturity and good sense prevailed!

I think a Swift D is enough to smoke him if required.

New Bel road at 11 PM is pretty deserted.So yeah, if really want to smoke someone, you can; provided you know where the speed breakers are.
