n. The feeling of instantaneous regret/remorse when one's disregard for rules goes immediately and horribly wrong.

Often experienced while driving when one looks in the the rear-view mirror and sees the flashing lights of the po po.

This feeling is commonly coupled with acts like running a red light, ignoring speed limits, and overall unnecessary silly acts with a car.
**Rear-view regret in action**

I sped. I followed too closely. I ran a stop sign. I almost hit a Chevy. I sped some more. I failed to yield at a crosswalk. I changed lanes at the intersection. I changed lanes without signaling while running a red light and *speeding*!
