Fake Rear End

Detachable car rear to keep tail-gaters at a distance
 
(+1, -1)
  [vote for,
against]

A detachable car rear that you can trail behind you when you are being bugged by a tail-gater. As you speed up, or drive in slippery conditions, the false back will drop back to maintain a safe distance between you, without the offender being any the wiser.

And, of course, when holographic projections become available, we can substitute those.
