If someone behind me is being a total touchhole (and I have few opportunities to just move over as I'm on two-lane roads 90% of the time) I like to drop it a couple gears but then wait a second before giving it gas. My car slows suddenly without brake lights but then takes back off. Gives them something to think about and often works to back them off (while giving me the benefit of the doubt that I was actually "brake checking" anyone)
