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.

After I overtake suddenly got 1 stray cat jump out of the bushes so I jam brakes lor

Jam brake straight away and it won't look as if you are doing it on purpose. Don't jam brake 2-3 times.

Law is law, real world is real world.
If these self entitled pricks even have a little bit of conscience they won't be road hogging.

What I cannot tahan are those real pricks who will purposely speed up to prevent you from overtaking and 90% of those road hoggers are like that, so its not just I travel at speed limit I can drive at lane 1 so innocent.

When there is video footage of something being done in the real world, it very quickly becomes about what the actual law is. I hate road hoggers with a vengeance but it's not worth getting yourself embroiled in legal issues. No amount of cat dashing in front of your car will save you if you are caught on camera abruptly cutting ahead of someone, especially from the left, and jamming brake.

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?
This is the most sensible action that is applicable to all road-users: pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists, motorists, and other drivers.

Getting into collisions, getting injured, or even getting killed, just to save mere seconds is not a matter of egoism; it is sheer stupidity, and sheer stupidity is very prevalent here.

If you claim that the cat jumped out, you better be able to prove it.

If you cannot prove it, your claim will fail if the other driver is able to prove, on a balance of probabilities, that you were behind him, moved to his front, and jammed brake in front of him.

Please dont play the braking game. Only imbeciles do that and imbeciles are punished to the fullest extent of the law.

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.

The root of the issue starts and ends with wisdom.
