I would say it is talking about a car traveling close behind my car. Tailgating is a similar word.

I can't slow down I have a truck right up my rear.

If you get hit from behind by another car you can say: I was read ended by a truck on the way to work.

'Right up' basically means someone or something is close.

The lion came right up to our car on the safari.
