    i wonder which one of the following sentences better expresses the idea of having a car following your car very closely in a road.

    "the guy behind is tailgating me!"

    "the guy behind is right on me!"

    Re: tailgating

    The first sentence.
    "Tailgating" is an American expression, and means that the car behind is so close, it is almost hitting the back of the car (the tailgate of the car).
