F...Brake Slammers

More specifically, F people who slam on their brakes when they see a cop up the highway on the side of the road as if suddenly slamming on their brakes aren't going to cause more problems...

Even more specifically, F people who slam on their brakes when they see a cop up the highway on the side of the road that has already pulled another driver over, as if the cop is suddenly going to jump back in his car while writing a ticket and chase you down, when you're probably driving near the speed limit anyway.

And even more specifically, F people who slam on their brakes when they see a cop up the highway on the OTHER SIDE of the highway, as if the cop is going to jump the median and chase you.

Seriously though, why do people insist on slamming the brakes whenever they see a cop car?

Re: F...Brake Slammers

Yeah, those people piss me off too. I actually speed up when I see a cop because I know that he has his guy and I don't have to worry about him pulling me over. That is, of course until Schneed jumps in front of me and creates a 4 lane blockaid.

Re: F...Brake Slammers

I know, by the time you see the cop chances are he's already clocked you. It really is pointless to try to slow down right in front of him.

One time this happened to me. He was going the opposite way on a 2 lane highway, and drove through the median to get me.

Re: F...Brake Slammers

Everyone knows that Cops operate in pairs, like "Goose and Maverick". They pull one guy and then everyone speeds up. Then the other cop gets the big ticket down the road. They've also got the helicopter in the sky clocking you and cameras everywhere. There is no escape . . . . Next thing you know they'll have and army of flying monkeys chasing down speeders, not to mention danger mouse and inspector gadget.

To this day I will never forget a simple rant my dad made: "Why are you braking on an interstate!"

Re: F...Brake Slammers

I also can't stand it when people insist on going 5 miles under the speed limit when a cop is nearby. I mean you're not going to get pulled over going 55 in a 55 for God's sake!

As for non-police related brake slammers, F them too. It was pouring down rain this morning, so yeah, driving conditions were not the best, but I got stuck behind a guy on the highway that kept speeding up and then slamming on his brakes just because the car that was about 100' ahead tapped theirs. If people are so afraid to drive in bad weather they need to just stay the hell at home.

As told by a cop...

He's not after the people who see him and don't make an attempt to slow down, (Granted if they're going 90 in a 65, that's definitely warrant for a ticket) but he's mostly after the people that either A) don't see him at all or B) see him and completely disregard the fact he's there.

I'm not a brake slammer but I'm not gonna get a ticket just because you're behind me and all butthurt because I'm slowing down. I'll gladly let you pass and you can shoulder the ticket for me.

...

The bigger problem I have, I was caught in traffic on 495 today around 10:30am today because 2 cops, a school bus and 2 cars were pulled over on the side of the road. Really? Is that really warrant for backing up traffic like that? I suppose people were rubbernecking it. That sucks way worse than brake slammers.

exactly it is a pointless and stupid measure. If you know where cops hang out it might be efficient to slow down about half a mile prior.

Rubbernecking is the ultimate traffic problem.
