What’s the best way to deal with aggressive drivers coming at you from behind? I live in a country where the speed limit is a rather generous 120kph (75mph) on the freeways. Traffic tends to go at an average speed of 85mph, and it’s not uncommon to see speeds in the fast lane between 95 and 110mph. (On occasion, I’ve even been overtaken by tour buses and 18-wheeler trucks going 10 to 20mph over the speed limit). Add to that the fact that cage drivers here are mostly on the aggressive side; they tend to follow really close and don’t allow for safe distances between vehicles. (Elwood, is there any way we can include the whole of Saudi Arabia in the “traffic sucks” listings you mentioned? I’m sure it would come out on top!).
I can deal with a person ahead of me trying to cut me off by slowing down and staying out of their blind spots. The question is how can I deal with an aggressive driver going so fast and coming up behind me?
