Try dabbing the brake with your left foot, that keeps them away.

Or the closer they get the slower you go. I witnessed a mini over take an hgv, then the mini slammed on it brakes in front of it! Never seen so much tyre smoke from the hgv. Good job I was not the hgv driver or that mini would have been a pancake. Invest in a dash came if your a safe driver.

Had a lump driving a van behind me earlier, I just moved in and let him past but it was on a two lane stretch. I tend to ease down by 10mph on a normal road and keep it there, I wouldn't suggest flash braking as it could cause a bump. Nobody will push me along, they can get as irate as they like.

Switch headlights on so your rear lights come on. They'll assume you've braked and will react in that split second to slow down before realising you've made a complete fool out of them.

That's actually pretty funny

I had a woman on my way home today in a Nissan Juke shoot right up to the back of me as I was overtaking a van, she must've been going 90mph, which is fine, but she comes so close and slows down right at the last minute so all I can see in my rearview is grill and bonnet... Took my sweet time finishing the overtake on the van and she even flashed me the second I was clear to move over, not safely clear, just physically clear... I'm not speeding up for you luv, I'm doing 74, so just wait

Exactly mate, as if people think we are going to rush for them, dont get me wrong i like a enthusiastic drive, but 30mph on a public road is far fast enough!

Ignore them, carry on. If I can drive at the speed limit safely, I'll be driving at the speed limit. If they want to risk getting a speed ticket that's up to them but don't expect me to as well.

I think maybe they just don't perceive the danger in driving so close behind somebody...

If I'm stuck behind somebody slow, or if I just want to get past somebody, I pull back to a distance where I can assess whether there's opportunity for a safe overtake. If there isn't, I just stay hanging back and continue on, if there is then I get past them nice and smoothly, and it's happy days 👍

I actually think the ones with the dash cams are the worst drivers.They go looking for trouble.After all if you didnt get so many problems then why would you need one?

The easy and cheap answer is to drive with consideration to all.Old school i know..................

Dip my rear view mirror so they cannot be seen. They have the problem, I've better things to do so wo'nt make their problem mine. Also always keep doors locked and never 'eyeball' other road users. If I'm not looking at them from their perspective they're failing to get any attention/reaction, which is the point of their behaviour.

My driving instructor always told me to slow down when you have a tailgater, he said it would make those who didn't realise they were doing it switch on, and keeps you on the right side of the law. In reality, I usually just send lots of swearwords at them and apply the first 10% of the brake pedal, which is mainly just operating the brake light to make them back off. If they want to overtake, let them do it at their own risk. My favourite thing to do is keep them behind me at the lights/roundabout and then leave them standing on the exit to show them that actually, they aren't being held up.

If you were on a motorway or dual carriage way, I move over and let them get on with it.. laughing as they pass... Poor chap needs to organise his day better if he is that late or that much of a rush..

Single carriageway... just keep calm and carry on..

Or, if I'm feeling cheeky.. tickle the accelerator, watch the gap grow, then as he passes - point and laugh at him..

I lift off and start slowing down I even will do 50% the limit till they get the message, if they start to overtake speed up.

If there is a speed camera near by I will try to make a gap so he crosses the detection lines above the limit.
