    Unusual story but I hope you enjoy it since it gave me a real good laugh!


    Driving on a three lane highway in the middle lane with moderate traffic minding my own business. Out of no where a black car is insane close behind my bumper. Guy came flying from no where and started riding my ass that I could see his face and not even the hood of the car. He keeps swaying back and forth taunting me and then heads to the left lane and moves up to line up with my car.

    Black Lexus sedan, newish model, two young "kids" in the car. First time the car was trying to line up for me I put up my ham radio mic pretending to call him in but they didn't see it. Second time when they went to line up I saw the passenger holding up his cell phone to record any race that was to begin so he can show off to his friends or post it on youtube. (not that he would win anyways). I would ASSUME that them being so close behind my car they would see a big antenna on the trunk to deter them away, but I guess not.

    Looking at the passenger with the phone up, I take mic again, show it and point it at him. His eyes widened and out of no where he turned to the driver, the car SLOWED down incredibly, went to the middle lane almost stopping traffic and they bailed at an exit that they just made. I guess they didn't want to be called in for reckless driving :D I died laughing. I honestly didn't want to race as there were too many cars and was just enjoying the drive. I went to pull the dashcam footage but my sd card was going kaput and kept freezing.

    I've had people ask if my mini Cooper was with out of state plates and a CB radio.

    I've had similar story to the OP, about 3 or 4 times, all but one of those was since moving to FL so I wrote it off as mostly driver stupidity, but it could be switching to an Icon with green glowing microphone buttons, or that I've gotten good about having a dashcam going. My usual is that when I talk on a radio or phone I tend to be in the right lane with cruise on at the PSL so they fly up on me pull e an or just ahead, then drop anchor and camp in my blindspot or tuck in a few inches off of my rear bumper. But again, in FL, this will happen even if I'm not on the radio.

    Antennas = cop to most people.
