I have used the same technique for 17 years and it has always worked fine for me. I usually wait until some jackass who wants to go fast passes me then I use them to speed with. I don't use the term "rabbit". I called them my "fish" and tell my passenger something like, "OK. There is my fish I am gonna hook into." I also use the term "bit*h". I follow them about 10 car lengths behind. I always keep an eye on my rear view mirror.
In all the times I have gotten pulled over for speeding which I would guess would be roughly 5-7 times (not always ticketed), it was when I was speeding alone and some LEO would be well hidden in a bush on the interstate median or I simply didn't see them.
Whenever I speed, I usually slow down when I approach an overpass or a turn off or a U-turn.
Do you guys use a technique similar to this or do you something completely different?
