What is the proper response to tailgaters? Please include any legal statute you can find, especially if it involves Washington.

My coworker and I are debating what to do when someone is tailgating you. I try to get out of their way. He slows down. Some people speed up. And others slam on their brakes.

He feels that if someone is tailgating you, it is the same as them holding a gun to your head and that you should slow them to a safe level. I feel just getting out of the way resolves the issue without escalating it. I also fear that if you slow down you likely set yourself up for an obstructing traffic ticket.

So, anyway, what is the "correct" response to people riding your bumper.

Red neck DIY tip of the day. A ball peen hammer is an excellent tool for massaging your own back. Bonus tip, the claw hammer makes a good back scratcher.

Another design idea that I don't think panned out. I was thinking a Cthulhu design for the brass etching would be cool. (I just got e-mail saying the brass just shipped. Ten 3"x4.5" sheets just the right size for going on the front of a Moleskine.) I looked at some other Cthulhu images and there were some consistent themes. A bulbous head. Bulbous eyes. Tentacles. And in about half of the images the tentacles come from a vertically slit mouth with pointy teeth. I think that last bit was a mistake for me to follow. The mouth makes this look more like an ant head with tentacles.

But, anyway, here is a first draft. Remember it has to be a pure b&w, no shades of grey. Much like if I was doing a stamp or a wood cut.

And I have to confess, the skull is from a font. I wish I could draw that well.

Hahaha!!! They are having to change the name of the new trolley. It was the "South Lake Union Trolley" (S.L.U.T.) Now they are hurrying to relabel things related to it with "South Lake Union Street Car".

D'oh!
