2. Braking in which causes an accident. ticket able
3. Driving for more than 2 miles in the left lane without passing. Ticket able
4. Rear ending the person in front of them. Ticket able. Unless you can prove #2
It seems that in the past year general public has slowed down on the roads. Now I do not tailgate. But I have been know to follow someone kinda close if they are driving to slow or in the wrong lane. driving slower than the posted speed drives me nuts. I was always taught that if you cannot drive the posted speed. That you should pull over and let everyone go by. If everyone new what the laws was their should be no problems. If someone is tailgating you move over. Now they are gone and the both of you are happy.
Are those IL laws? In CO you can get a ticket just for driving in the left lane unless you are passing.
