Default New rear Bumper?

So the past few days Ive realized how stupid people around here drive in the snow. I almost got rear ended by a pontiac yesterday, and they acted pissed at me, so I about lost my cool, which is frowned upon by the local police. I'm thinking about making a scary ass back bumper to keep idiots away from me.
1.The first option Im thinking of is to make something like a truss, pointy end pointed back, just for the scare factor. But I dont want to get charged with endangerment or attempted murder, and also dont really want anybody killed.
2. I could very easily get my hands on a new railroad tie(legally, dont worry about that lol). Build some brackets with strap Iron that would bolt up to the frame rails, Cut to length, stain, and paint something like BACK OFF OR DIE in big red letters.
3. Leave the stock bumper until some moron hits me and get the insurance money, and sue for anything I dang well Please.

I love 'em, but not on my street rig lol. I'm making one for my GMC POS right now actually. It's HUGE. I am taking off the tailgate of the gmc and putting up a net because the tailgate wont lower. I guess I was just venting, at all the Idiots that slide toward my pride and joy, when I posted this the other day.

Here's what I built. I integrated it into my hitch, mainly becuase it's hard to avoid without removing it.... This pic is before it was complete. I've since added a diamond plate top and aux reverse backup lights.

I just got to thinking, that bumper looks pretty bare under the tailgate, if I ever build a tube bumper I'm going to integrate a steel roll pan to have a "finished" look to it.

a chain dragging on the ground does good. My friend had one stuck in the tailgate of the Redneck Express (83 F-250 that was falling apart) and we NEVER had someone tailgate us.

You'd be suprised how well that one works.

i would get something like a railroad tie and fab it up behind the original bumper and when you or if you do get hit it'll f-up their front end like you wouldn't believe. we have alot of retards here in Idaho also.

my opinion
