almost murdered me on 610

I was getting on 59 this morning and a guy in a black Range Rover with the dealer paper plates on it tried to drive up my tail pipe. I got on to 610 S and he still was trying to check me for polyps. After I got on 610 I tried to get as far away from the guy as possible to give him a way to get around me. He kept on crawling up my . He just wouldnt go around. I finally exited the freeway and he stayed on it. me off more. Already late for work because my new kitten died. Not a good day. Now I have like $250 worth of cat stuff and no cat. Not that I am not upset about the cat, but I am also wondering if I should get another or not.

I got the cat to keep the dog company. He was sad this morning when the cat was dead.

I am not a fan of cat boxes. I got an automatic cleaning one. It works great. My ex used to clean hers daily and it still smelled. This thing cleans it every time. I had to open it up to make sure the cat was poopin. He was. It was just really good at cleaning itself. The box that is. And then I got the scratchy thing. Then I got the good food. And flea/tick stuff to keep him clean. adds up pretty quick.

What lane where you on? When people follow you closely there are lots of things you could do to stay away from the situation.
-speed up and loose hem.
-move to the other lane.
-move to the farther lane and slow down so then pass you safely
Some people are just a bunch of POS

So sad that we have to resort to carrying gravel in our clothes to get to not kill us. I was seriously considering firing a warning shot into his face.

Did everything but slow down. I was in the right lane of the two that merge from 59n to 610s then I went to the far left to GTFO he stayed on my the whole way. I think he was trying to use me as a way through traffic.

Should have lane split to see if he would follow

Sorry you're having a bad day.

Don't let people do that to ya man. Either exit the freeway (like a hot pit), or pull over if it's a safe shoulder. Much more dangerous to have a 2 ton vehicle up your at 80mph....

Back when I used to speed I would find that I would pick up yahoos like that like my was a magnet and they were metal filings. The easiest way to get rid is to exit (like you did) or if you're worried they will follow try this maneuver:

Accelerate above average travel speed.
pass someone in the right lane on their left
cut over immediately after and keep going onto the shoulder
decelerate quickly (careful, shoulder have a lot of debri)
Watch as the yahoo blasts past.

Only thing I don't like is that you have to wait a bit as they will slow way down and you can catch up to them if you merge back too soon.

Hate the typical houstonian driver.
