road rage in front of you
OK, there have been several post about the fact that it's a good idea to leave room in front of your car to make an exit in case something happens in front of you.
I was thinking about this as I was driving home. I stopped at a light and left a ca length between my car and the car in front of me. The road I'm on is two lanes each way, plus a left turn lane, and at this light there is also a right turn lane. I'm in the right hand straight lane, right turn lane to my right is empty, another straight lane on my left with car in front of me and on my left.
Here's the scenario. The two drivers in the cars in front of me, both in the straight thru lanes get in an argument. All of a sudden they pull guns and start shooting. I can't back up because there is a car on my rear bumper.
Do you sit tight, duck down behind the wheel, or do you try to drive into the right turn lane and around the car in front of you?
There's a good chance stray bullets passing thru the car or thru the open windows of the car you drive around are going to hit you.
So do you just stay put and hope all the shots go left/right, and none go back towards you?
