In place of the S4, I've been scooting about on the Vepsa for the last couple weeks. It's still fun.
I've noticed a lot more tailgaters and people getting too damn close to me at stoplights, as well as general fuckery on the part of the Phoenix cagers.
I've discovered two tricks that seem to work well for controlling the minds of the unwashed cager masses.
- If you can't get out of the way of a tailgater (In the HOV lane, traffic next door is too slow to move over), start weaving in the lane. I don't know if this scares the asshats, or just makes them notice me, but 9 out of 10 times they back off.
- At stoplights, keep an eye on your mirrors. When you see a cage approaching behind you, flash your brake lights a few times. I don't know why, but this really works for slowing them down and getting them to stop further back.
The driver got so pissed. Really, you can't pay to have that much fun.
