You can buy an LED light that sends a message that you type in and rest it on the back shelf :)
"Back off crap driver" might help :)

Just speed up then, it's easy really!

Then you won't need one. Or if you can't either a) get out of the way or b) get a faster car!

But that's no fun. I see it like an extreme sport - some people bungee jump, some people paraglide. I like to drive at 119kph in the outside lane of the Emirates Road.

love the idea!! :-> I do find that my N85 has a nice strobe flash light that is quite effective when held up to the rear view mirror or when they do overtake me and I take their photo! fabulous!

I would like to have some gadget that could fire mud balls at them. Nice to get their car filthy as well.

In a different lifetime I used to drive a mark2 escort,, (bored to 1760,twin webbers, rs diff. For the petrolheads!), and apart from all the performance enhancements the most useful add on was a halogen spotlight which i had on the back bumper. It was brighter than a full beam headlight and when someone tailgatted me I could just flick a switch and make them disappear.

The difference in Dubai is that you must understand that some of these people become mentally unstable when they get behind the wheel and they ar edriving very powerful cars. The result of these two FACTS is that at some point they will either pass you and brake test you or follow you home so if you want to take on one of the local idiots you have to be sure that you are a good enough driver to deal with what comes next!!

Try using your windscreen washer. it squirt´s over the top of your car onto theirs and really P´s them off cause their nice shiny clean car gets specks of dirt all over it.

I have emptied my washer tank many times on the Dubai/Abu Dhabi Gauntlet

try it, when they are that close you can see the expresion of disgust on their faces ;)
