    What would DC do? Landrover driver mobbed by bikers in the Bronx!

    I have always thought about what I would do if I ever had to face off against a motorcycle club or gang.

    What if I have kids in the car?

    What if they try to circle me in an attempt to get me to stop?

    etc


    Well this driver experienced it first hand.

    45 sec mark for the incident.

    5:05 for the attempted door opening of land rover.

    6:10 for conclusion.


    What would DC do?

    Use my vehicle to mow them over if I felt my life was in danger.

    Edit: Something like this happened to my wife on the way back from Vegas. Not her car being targeted, but some punks trying to control traffic.

    I've seen bikers block off traffic to let their buddies through as if they were police clearing an intersection rolling code.

    I think it would have been worse if they were a 1% gang, probably shots fired and definitely windows broke out.

    Did something happen before they started chasing/videoing it?

    I see it was in NY so no possible way the guy in the car could have defended himself with anything other than his vehicle.

    Exactly what this guy did. Would have called the cops after the first incident (45s) but if they never showed up then 6:11 would be when the shooting started.

    Score one for "carry an extra mag or two" here as well.

    It's pretty obvious that one of the bikes brake checked the RR and got bit in the rear tire. At that point I would not care what they did; if they tried to stop me after starting it, I would absolutely mow them over. No way I am facing street justice for something I did not cause, especially if my family was in the car.

    I would have stayed on the highway got on the phone with police tell them what was happening and where I was and used whatever means necessary to defend myself.

    The driver should have called the police that for sure would have made most of the bikers disperse and the few that stick around would most likely be arrested, due to them being angry.

    Driver also should stayed on the freeway where there was more free lanes as opposed to running into lights.

    Put it in reverse at the end and don't stop, unless you see cars and then put it in drive once the light turns green. Repeat as necessary.

    Went to see if I could find more info on how this turned out, it seems not too bad in this case which is pretty lucky all round:

    No question, the guy bashing in the drivers window with his helmet would get to test the limits of Obamacare, ASAP. Assuming poor marksmanship, that is.

    especially considering there was a young child in the back.

    In this case the cell phone is your best friend. 6 minutes of BS happening is plenty of time to get on the phone with 911 and tell them whats happening and where you are. You are in a 5000 pound vehicle, those bikes better move, if not, will see how the bikers bumpers hold up....

    In the scenario in the video at the end when the helmet comes thru the window, all bets are off.
    Don"t let stupid be your skill set....

    All bets are off if my kids are with me. No hesitation at that point.
