When a driver follows the car in front leaving little or no stopping distance especially at high speed.

This behaviour may stem from any or all of the following:

Lack of imagination.
Never seen pictures of a road accident.
Learning difficulties.
Road rage.
Someone who only managed to pass his/her driving test by giving the examiner a blow job.
Suicidal tendencies.
Having an extra chromosome.
Loneliness or pathological nosiness
Drink or drugs.
Being born with somekind of twat gene.
Driver is busy trying to figure out what the indicator lever is for.
A guy that is so dammed horny that he just can't wait to get to his mothers house.

Many female tailgaters like to put a sign in the rear window of their car stating that there is a 'Baby on Board'.

Tailgating may lead to a car fuck
Despite the 70mph limit I clocked 120mph while attempting to shake off the tailgater.

It was pitch black on that road, when I turned my car lights back on I observed that the tailgater had dropped back to reasonable distance.

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.
