In all honesty, I don't know if I'd be able to refrain from a well placed PIT. I'm not going to shoot from my vehicle but I will match deadly force with deadly force if I perceive them as a continuous threat.

Distance is your friend. I'd stop, move outta the way, whatever I could to get that wing-nut off my tail-lights and out of HIS range. No PIT's or firing from my moving vehicle (if I could help it).....and no persuit from 'a safe distance'. I'm calling the cops and letting him go.
This thug just fired into another vehicle on the interstate for no 'real' or apparent reason......he don't care WHO gets hurt. The chances of someone getting hurt is too great to chance.
Engaging with my sidearm, in my vehicle, on the interstate, is the last thing I'd do if I could help it.
As for the write-up, I'm suspecting there's 'more' to this incident than's being reported. Smells an awful lot like a road-rage incident similar to what happened down this way a few days ago.

By my count, 15 shootings in 24 hrs, then 13 more the following two days. That's 28 shootings from Friday to Monday.

I'd be willing to bet it was a road rage incident and we're only hearing part of the story.

Unless the reason behind the shot was self-defense or some other reason that would prove the shooters innocence I could not care less why they did it.
They are behind me ?
Slam on my brakes and brace myself for the impact & the air bag deployment.
I had to hit my brakes to avoid that duck on the hiway.
