You are in a line of traffic. The driver behind you is following very closely. What action should you take?

A Slow down, gradually increasing the gap between you and the vehicle in front

If the driver behind is following too closely there’s a danger they will collide with back of your car if you stop suddenly. You can reduce this risk by slowing down and increasing your safety margin ahead. This reduces the chance that you will have to stop suddenly and you can spread you braking out over a greater distance. This is an example of defensive driving.

Tailgating is the practice of driving extremely close to the vehicle in front, and it is particularly dangerous. If someone is tailgating you, gently ease off the gas and allow more space in front of you. You definitely don't want to put yourself in a situation where you have to brake because the vehicle in front of you is too close. If you have plenty of space in front of you and the tailgater happens to hit you in the rear, your car will not hit the one in front, perhaps averting a massive pileup. Additionally, it simplifies the insurance problem a little bit.
