I am so sick of being tailgated. I drive at the speed limit, even if I speed up a bit and go over the speed limit tailgaters just speed up themselves and get closer.

There's a road by me that's recently changed from 40mph to 30mph, there's a speed camera there too, it's the worst for people driving up your arse because I don't think some people realise the speed limit has changed.

Today a taxi driver was up my back bumper, we stopped at some lights and I started moving forward and he started beeping at me immediately as the lights changed, we were both turning right anyway and lots of oncoming traffic so we weren't getting anywhere in a hurry. Next he started beeping at me for stopping at a zebra crossing with pedestrians crossing, then he followed me into the supermarket car park, I had to stop at the zebra crossing in the supermarket car park to let people cross and I was driving slowly because you know, it's a supermarket car park and there were people everywhere with children and trolleys, and cars reversing, and he beeped at me again.

I admit I lost me temper and when I'd parked I went over to him and asked what he was playing at and so on and he just laughed in my face.

I really want to report him but no ones going to give a shit are they?

By the way before anyone things it's me I'm not in a little village in in a very busy city and we get a lot of young lads racing around doing way, way over the limit in their noisy cars.

If you got his taxi number and reg number report him to the licensing authority.

Report him, he's a 'professional' driver and behaving like that?

I was taught to slow down when being tailgated. I usually slow down until they get the message and increase the gap, then I slowly return to the right speed for the road/conditions.
