if you are ever getting tailgated in your car, and really want them to back off....try washing your windshield for about a minute straight.  It does wonders :-)

As far as being tailgated, i dont worry about it so much in the bus, however being Mech. Inject., it has an anti-tailgate feature that is quite effective :D.  Kinda like an octopus ;D.

 ;D

Brings to mind a cool idea for a bumper sticker:

If you can read this, your vehicle has now been rust proofed and tinted.

Thread winner!
