11. not always a bad idea, dropping a gear quickly scares 'em straight
the sudden slowing down without brake lights is a big way to scare them into flying straight. besides, you never know when a car can brake down and suddenly starts to rapidly slow down without the brake lights coming on. there's a reason why you need to leave space in front of you when driving. besides, here in CA he who rear ends is almost default guilty -- shouldn't have been that close in the first place :D a helpful reminder isn't a bad thing. ;)
