    Brake-checking another vehicle is dangerous.... in case I wasn't being clear enough.

    If a vehicle is tail-gating you, the proper thing to do is move over and let him through.

    Yep. I can’t understand these idiots trying to cause accidents. Driving slow on left lanes and brake checking faster moving vehicles - Zero road courtesy.

    That is dangerous and definitely not advisable. Mamya mabagal reflexes niyan. Rear ended ka pa.

    Slow down and let them pass and if still taligating, slow down to park somewhere preferably near places where there are police or traffic enforcers para madeter mga kups na ganyan sa trip nila.

    And should be common road courtesy... Much more for those driving slow vs the limit....

    The bad thing is that the brake-checker proceeds in his merry way, unscathed....

    While a dozen vehicles behind him got into an accident,- worse,- with fatalities....

    That's why these people should be collared.... There should be lane discipline in our roads....

    hey!
    don't forget tailgating.
    it's also frowned upon.
    if the car in front of you makes a sudden brake, and you plow into him, it's your fault by default. "you were following him too closely."

    Of course, it takes two to tango....

    If someone tailgates you (or flashes his headlights), that means he wants to pass,- so frown, speed up if possible and if still allowed, and move aside on the first opportunity,- and let him meet his accident somewhere...

    Not just drive your drive and let him plow into you... You cannot make it hard for him, just to make your point. No one owns the road,- neither you or the tailgating driver. And accidents are accidents,- real painful.

    Driving, like life, is all about choices....

    If you can outpace the car behind you, then floor it. Except for a few, I find that most people will not tailgate you if you go faster than 120 kmh. Floor it past 150kmh and most would chicken out. If you don't have the nerves to floor the pedal, then switch to the slower lane.

    If all lanes are moving on the same pace, then keep your pace until finding the opportunity to speed up or switch to the slower lane.

    tailgating is a dangerous maneuver, if you want to pass the car in front of you flash your light or honk once to let the driver of the car in front of you know of your intention and I'm pretty much sure he will understand this kind of gestures unless he's an a$$hole, imho
