I dont believe there was any wreckless driving that night. I was following another car in front of me that was driving 70-85 on a highway with hardly any traffic. Although this is above the posted speed, I think there was minimal risk. The only questionable move was the shoulder pass by the other car. There are many things that we all do every day that includes a certain measure of risk. I do agree that I should not have come up on his tail and flashed my brights and I apologize to Nick and everyone else. I guess the child in me sometimes gets out and the overconfidence in my driving skills. I apologize. As for your comment that american driving standers are poor, you are probably right. However, having lived in Europe, I will tell you that it is not much better. Thanks for your comments. It is probably a good idea for me to go back to my board. Enjoy your weekend everyone.
,Ok Nick,
So you are pulling high speed manoeuvres and you tell us you are NOT pulling away fast and stopping quickly because you have a clunk coming from underneath your car of which you have no idea from whence it is coming???

Jeezus kid, use your noodle...something could be TERRIBLY wrong and you are pulling these antics...
Thank the driving Gods and get your car checked and then take some driving schools....

And as far as Mr ChicagoSilverM5 goes, you think we are too hard on the are just as reckless as he was....

So..let me get this have a car in front of you swaying around without his foot on the brake, it is dark, in traffic, he illegally uses the shoulder and you FOLLOW him??

Get real...he could have been drunk or stoned and, in a fit of bravado and because your wife gives you permission (and to show your wife what a hot shoe you are), you get up his tail and flash him because you want him to move over so you can "fly past him"....Sorry, get a life...referring to your description of the event, you are definitely NOT an accomplished driver (well, maybe in your own mind!).

Take a few driving schools will you and Oh Yes...I live in the Western Suburbs of Chicago and do know what its like driving around here! Especially watching the lack of decent driving standards shown by a lot of U.S. drivers!
