Remember how I posted that poll to find out who brake-checks because of the guy who was tailgating me on a windy 1-lane road? Well, karma hit, and I’m very sad for the outcome.
This morning, I drove by him and his smashed-in white Mustang–he hit a deer on the same stretch of road. He was on the phone, on the side of the road, and had already moved the deer off to the side as well.
BTW, I’ve started slowing down instead of tapping my brakes and y’all were right, it IS more effective!

Karma’s a bitch. I once had someone tailgate me, I slowed down, he eventually passed (2-lane road) and I saw him pulled over by a cop from a speed trap a couple miles later. LOL

Awww the poor deer. At least the guy’s insurance premiums will go up since it’s probably an entirely at fault accident – I can’t really see how it wouldn’t be. But… poor deer. I hope it didn’t suffer.

Ugh. Poor deer! I hate the a-holes who tailgate. Esp. when it is a a street with only 25 mph speed limit or I’m in the slow lane. I’m driving slow for a reason, buddy!

Ugh I’d be so upset for that deer. I saw a dead deer on my road one time, where the speed limit is 30 miles an hour, and I literally started yelling about it like a maniac to absolutely no one in my car. I was so pissed. Ever since then, I’ve driven strictly at or under the speed limit on that road, no matter how hard I’m getting tailgated. This probably pisses a lot of people off, but it’s a one lane road, and I feel pretty accomplished when I know I’m keeping the guy behind me from speeding and we pass a wild deer or turkey at the side of the road.
Poor animals… I hope that dude enjoys his skyrocketing premiums and the knowledge that his recklessness took a life.

Oh wow! That was not the update I was expecting! Wreckless driving always catches up to people, I guess…
