How about just ignore them?

Also, I've told numerous people that gas is to expensive to waste on beating them.

Like others say... call the cops, or show him that you are... ie- roll down the window and show him you've dialed 911. Or just exit at the closest off-ramp, then jump back on the freeway... you won't lose much time this way.

I had some modded mustang gt dicking around with me at 1am, and I just left it in cruise control, despite his triple honk "race me" attempts (he did it 4 times!).

I have friends in the CHP (California Highway Patrol), and if I make a call... the person WILL get pulled over.

I have a Thule bicycle rack on top of my wrx....so nobody thinks I can go fast. Plus I think the rack adds like 30hp....

WAT? You have to call 311 for the number to 411, to ask for the number to 911?

Oh, god, the ironing, this is post #111 in this thread too...

Wow, there's an epic fail! Glad you fine. When I run into people doing that I just smile and maintainy speed. Don't get sucked in. It almost never shops at one simple pull and the next thing your flying through traffic. Best to shake your head, smile and get home safely.

I am glad to hear the honda boys got what they deserved... i usually just give them the middle finger and an unamused look, it usually does the trick on them... you can always throw them the shocker and then honk 3 times.... and then just let them take off/call the cops.... so they can call all of their friends to tell them how cool they are and how they beat a subaru in a street race from JAIL....

I have retards in civics and mustangs reving at me at lights... I don't even drive a wrx.... seems that every ricer out there automatically thinks impreza=wrx.

I ignore them and let them go about their business while I make sure to follow all the laws.
