If you are not on the outermost lane, be zen and ignore tail-gater. Accept that tailgating vehicle is also helping you to achieve better fuel efficiency by "pushing" your vehicle. Though, if it is king kong lorry, should get out of its way as soon as possible and later send cam footage to tp.
Erm, actually, the road hog in front of the tailgater is helping to break wind resistance for the tailgater. The car behind will achieve better fuel economy if he's doing it right.

Edit: Cool wind tunnel footage for illustration, so don't expect a Ferrari to help your Fortuner much but a 7 Series will help your Jetta quite a bit.

Some drivers like to tailgate you even when you are driving at max speed limit.
TAILGATERS! I hate them to the core.

Usually if someone comes up fast behind me, I would quickly change lane to a slower lane and repent why I am driving so slowly, instead of coming online and KPKB.

In fact, before they could tailgate me, I would have moved my ass and repent.

Love the last statement!
'PURELY A MORAL DECISION'

So those who dont do so mean the opposite of being moral aka making a moral decision in such case???..

My english no good so best to check on internet for the best word to use..

https://www.wordhippo.com/what-is/th.../morality.html

Pick 1 to describle them?

-amorality
-dishonour
-immorality
-unethicalness
-wickedness
-corruption
-sinfulness
-dishonesty
-dishonor
-indecency
-unfairness
-badness
-evil

Which should be the better word to use??
Actually, the words are all wrong as making a moral decision does not make a person moral or immoral simply because there is no right or wrong, just as there is no right or wrong to make donations.

Making a moral decision is all about empathy.

Do we feel empathetic to tailgaters, because we feel they are rushing for whatever reasons, and therefore we ought to give way?

In the same vein, do we feel empathetic to drivers who signal late?

The vehicle being tail gated also encounter less drag due to interaction with the tail gater. The pressure behind is slightly higher with the tail gater than without the tail gater leading to lower drag. Some consolation to the tail gated.

And when all drags, winds, and pressure stop, the interactive outcome is an astonishing climax.

A lot of ppl question about road hog, tail gate, road bully etc. On the road there are all kind of ppl, whats important is I'll give way and get home in a safe manner as I can. Driving on the road I have no ego or who is right who is wrong, argue till cow come home also no use. Best is I reach home bath xiang xiang watch tv... why waste time on someone you duno?

Guess my language still never improve lolol

Bro sanchin said it well!.
Guess the root of the issue MAY start with huge ego installed within a person?

Some driver may just feel otherwise(seriously dont know what is in their head) to give way? End up holding everyone time and may cause frustration and anger to others which lead to all the drama of jam-brake game, etc etc.

Just signal left and give way, well that's it.
Main thing is home safely for everyone ya.

Road hoggers are self entitled pricks that deserves a expensive lesson. Overtake them and jam brake make them pay for new rear bumper is the best solution.
