Ran off the road in a car, possible deadly intent?
This is a discussion on Ran off the road in a car, possible deadly intent? within the Carry & Defensive Scenarios forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; In this case, if nothing else, would you even draw on this offending person (if you could), or would that be just unjustified "road rage?"

No, because it's either unjustified, or impractical - or both.

I had a similar situation - except I managed to stay on the road. Called the police - they were of no help. Bad, but so what... Trying to shoot at a car speeding away would be fine for a movie, but not for the (my!) real life.

Some years back, there was a spate of deliberate "accidents" on Chicago freeways for the purpose of robbery. Several people got killed as I recall.
You think that some predators won't bump you to steal your Mercedes, or seriously smash a car to take a woman for fun?
Reread that Knoxville story.

Sounds like an accident (possibly a drunk or a medical situation), certainly not a situation in which to present a firearm.
She should be glad that she's still around to talk about it.
Now she should go see that attorney.

This type of thing is exactly the situation that the anti's predicted would happen when Michigan became a "shall issue" state.
Thankfully it hasn't happened. I seem to recall hearing a statistic that said that there has only been one incident where a CPL holder in Michigan had to draw at the scene of an accident, and in this case the courst ruled that it was self defense due to the attack from the other driver.
There may be several reason for the low number of CPL holders using their firearms after accidents;
1. CPL holders are more SA aware, better defensive drivers.
2. CPL holders are able to defuse the situation through words.
3. There are not a lot of CPL holders in Michigan. (I don't think this is valid, but as a total percentage we are still less than half, but growing every day.)
