An ancillary pet peeve: That as far as I know, cops rarely if ever ticket people for tailgating.

The cops will happily pass out speeding tickets -- which is point'n'click-easy for them to do -- but they won't do a thing about tailgating (which is probably more dangerous than speeding most of the time), except perhaps if there is actually an accident which, after the fact, can be blamed on tailgating.
To the traffic enforcement officers of the world: PLEASE START TICKETING PEOPLE FOR TAILGATING!
We need a knew type of radar or laser system that not only measures the speed of vehicles, but the distance between them at the same time.
