Can people taigate you while knowing you have other drivers ahead and to the side of you?
* Tailgate not taigate, sorry
* Two drivers did this to me on the freeway tonight, I had few cars ahead and some semis to the right, what they did truly expect would happen?

They have the ability to do that. Is it wise or legal? Now you can answer that.Source(s): I was in far right lane, doing 60 in a 65. Next to me was a semi. Guy in pickup came behind me, flashed headlights for me to move. Where? The shoulder? Just another idiot late for formation inside Camp Pendleton. Regularly I see vehicles on I-5 north of Oceanside doing between 100 and 120, then they take the base exit.

They can, but it is stupid and dangerous. Call the cops next time this reckless situation comes up. You CAN use a cellphone in emergencies while driving. Sometimes they do it out of aggression, but other times, they're selfishly afraid to leave space others may need to change lanes.

A tailgater does not care about any of that, they love driving up your ***. I always put the flashers on when they do this, some of them do get the message; some others are beyond hope.

Sometimes, when someone is tail-gating you, it's because a driver behind him is tail-gating him; and so he's more or less forced to tail-gait you. The "domino" effect.

just slowly slow down, they'll go around you............

You might touch your brakes just enough for the lights to come on . It might wake them up.
You might slow down, pull over and let them pass. (you said that the semi's were to the right of you, so you were in the left lane)

No, that is against the laws of man and nature

Of course they CAN, even though they shouldn't. But then the majority of drivers do things they shouldn't do. That's why there are so many accidents and why insurance is so expensive for everybody.Source(s): Common sense. Get some.

Once had a lady tailgating me, about 10 feet behind me. I stopped in front of a tailgater, got out, walked back and said "Stop Tailgating!" She said "I wasn't tailgating."
KNOW THE TRUTH -- Tailgaters do not know that they are tailgating.
Others can tailgate you. The person behind you does NOT know they are tailgating.
