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.
