    Mercedes drivers are the worst lot I have come across. Tailgate or no tailgate they think they own the road. So far the Beng Bosses who drives merc are the worst culprit.

    If any of our fellow CS members drive merc, hope u dont fall into this typical group.
    Don't want to generalise type of drivers but I tend to agree. But the most causes of these are impatience, be it Taxi Drivers, Mercedes owners... Everyone is in a rush rush mode.

    That's why I go to work after 10am and leave for home before 5pm, no traffic and takes me little time on the road and don't pay garmen a single cent.

    Even lunch time go for lunch at 11:40am no one hogging the lift and zero tissues on tables and seats, get first selection of hot food. So if you can away by changing the system, then do it... take control.

    Another thing to do is to tap your brake pedal lightly while stepping on the gas. Tap enough so your brake light comes on but you are not actually slowing down. They'd pull back too, very effective method.

    Thirdly, you can just take your foot off the accelerator and let your car slow down, annoys the heck out of anyone behind you.

    Another method is to turn on your signal, make like you're signalling to get to the slower lane but remain where you are. Damn annoying too.

    Of course errant tailgaters will react by pulling closer or flashing their high beams at you. They'd tire easily and be on their way...
    Wow

    these are worse than tailgating

    I used to drive a van too and can't go pass the speed limit while trucks drivers tried to intimidate the small vans/goods vehicles to go faster by tailgating us.
    What I did was to let my speed slow down, lower my window and wave them to pass.
    Wave them to pass and no other hand gestures.

    i don't mind tailgater as long as they don't flash me,
    would simply move left(me ride bike and usually on the inner most lane)
    n let him pass.
    but if they should high beam me,
    will let them pass n move back at a safe distance behind them,
    AND HIGH BEAM THEM ALL THE WAY!!!

    This is 1 thing I like about driving on Malaysia Highway. You hardly see any tail gate business there, or beep-beep horn, everyone seems to be very "automatic" when any vehicles come near behind.
    usually i get tailgated and high beam when traveling on the inner most lane.
    speed = don't want to self-incriminate, but not slow AT ALL


    so, in this instance, doubt there are 2 sides.
    basta*rds who r used to flashing would flash regardless,
    gentlemen would simply overtake, hopefully from the right.

    Why must think so much. The car can reach your 'back side' mean it's travel faster than you just move to the other lane la. In malaysia 180km/h also got people over take or become tailgate if i don't move aside.

    A lot of drivers forgot that Singapore has a rule that states keep left unless overtaking. There are signs along expressway and major roads that actually says that.

    Tailgaters are dangerous, road hoggers are dangerous, speeding drivers are dangerous, slow drivers are dangerous, any drivers can be dangerous if they don't practise safe and gracious driving.

    what your speed? not slow AT ALL maybe very slow to other, some lorry driver can speed up to 100km/h.

    For those who drive below 80km/h in highway i really hope they go fly kite and drive bicycle.

    You do defensive driving but please protect the road user who are totally exposed without windscreen.

    Ya, I drive and ride so I am not against driver only. So please think carefully next time if you are doing it again and make the road be a safer place.

    of cos at certain speed you can avoid large monsters tailgate problems.......but van drivers can only travel at an average speed of 80km/h on x-press way. by right speed limit is at 70km/h.......unable to go beyond that or else will definitely invites uncle sam.

    What about adding in a LED light that flashes "STOP TAILGATING" at the rear of your car whenever you press a button?

    He said that he will only do that if the motorcycle is tailgating. if you're not such a tailgating biker, you should have nothing to fear. Or the reason why you're reacting thsi way is because....

    I agree with kelccm. The road is not a race track. Rather, treat it like a ballroom dance hall.

    a. IMHO, the most dangerous category of drivers are those who do not have enough sleep or under the influence of alcohol.
    b. The easiest and a safer drive is to leave a lot early and drive relaxed at the slow lane.

    It is not driving skills that counts. Controlling our Attitude is the more difficult and important discipline to master.

    After many years of driving, I realised that inconsiderate highbeaming, roadhogging, retaliation driving, speeding and what-nots are really foolish acts. I was there, done all that and loved the adrenalin rush too.
    Respect for life and other road users are important practices. Only then, real safe driving habits can be formed.
    Do be reminded of the taxidriver who was reported to have smiled after motorcyclist was killed. He is a skillful driver and old bird, but he used it go get a young fella killed. A car can easily be turned into be a weapon. Some people love to drive a 'weapon' and not a vehicle. They think they are masked and protected. Watch carefully for their signs - you can spot them easily and keep a distance. 'Educating' them on the road is foolishness too. You can feel their crazy mind as they drive - thinking they are the world best, fastest and most skillful driver, as they zip, zag, beam and tail the rest of world.

    bukit batok(the dew) to orchard delfi.
    fast enough?

    100km/h
