Why Do Drivers Tailgate Sports Cars? – MotorBiscuit

Let’s face it, being tailgated by another car is annoying no matter which car you’re driving. However, for some reason, whenever I drive my 2008 Honda S2000, I feel as though anyone behind me has to ride up on my car’s rear-end with an unknown vendetta. Not only is it annoying, but it’s also very dangerous. So why do drivers like to tailgate small sports cars?

And while there may not be a scientific reason that drivers tailgate sports cars or smaller cars in general, there are a few speculative reasons as to why.
