Above All - Stay Calm and Do Not Become an Aggressive Driver

One of the biggest risks of dealing with a tailgater is that you will let yourself become overly nervous or angry at the situation. An overwhelmed driver becomes a dangerous driver and makes you as much of a threat to the other drivers as the tailgater.

If the methods listed above do not stop your tailgating problem, you should pull over to a safe, well-lit area with other people around. If the driver follows and gets out of his car, remain calm with the windows up and doors locked. If you believe the driver will be a threat to others, or if the driver follows you and you feel that you are in danger, you should call 911 to report him to the police.

Additionally, if you pull over, you can report the incident directly to the police. Remember to get as many details about the vehicle as you can, such as make, model, and color.
