it's worse in california. i was actually attacked for
*properly* and at the correct distance flashing my
brights at a van. he was in the fast lane (of four
lanes) on a freeway where the average speed is 70+.
he literally tried to run me off the road and attempted
to rear end me. 911 was unsympathetic.

they have signs in california. they go completely unheeded.
i have been considering a thin panel of led lights in
my back window. just a strip of them, about 4 inches
tall, not really visible until i hit the button. they

i'll ever do it...
