1) Usually found around sporting events, they involve beer drinking and BBQ from the back of a pickup truck or SUV.

2) The car that is so close to you in the rear that you can barely see it's headlights. Some people like to quickly brake to scare them off. Pretty annoying, but it's better to move to the right. Nobody likes a Left Lane Dick... unless there is no right lane. In that case, it's time for a Skid Contest.
1) Before the football game, we had a tailgate party with beers and BBQ.

2) I was driving down the sidestreet at 40 and that guy was still tailgating me. So, I 'noticed' a 'cat' on the road and slammed my brakes.

verb
Present participle of tailgate

1. Something that monkeys who have no idea how to properly drive do in which they drive dangerously close to the car in front of them for no apparent reason.

2. Attending a sporting event, but instead of watching it in person or on a TV at home, combining the two by watching said event in the parking lot of the arena/stadium on a TV in the back of a pick-up truck while eating shitty barbecue.
1.

Person A: Did you see that fucking ape that was tailgating me the entire way here even though I was going 70 mph?!?
Person B: Yeah what a dumbass, I don't understand why some people think driving up other cars' asses will make them go faster when all it really does is increase the chance of an accident.

2.

I can't find a damn parking spot because so many are taken by tailgaters! If they're gonna watch the game on a TV why not just do it at home?!!?

Revolving around a professional, college or even high school football game, tailgating is a supercharged, urban picnic party. Participants prepare food, drink, bring flags and other football team paraphernalia. Tailgaters congregate around the car, listen to the game on the radio, enjoy the food and bond.
I'm going tailgating tomorrow with some friends before the Bears game.
