    People who walk blocking the road..

    Situation: You're driving in your car (normal city street with curbs, etc) and start to get closer to a group of 5-6 late teen's. It's pretty obvious they aren't going to move, but just swagger down the middle of the road.

    What would be your rational course of action?

    (Not really a CCW topic so I put it here)

    Press any key.......
    Speed up!

    Whoops, we're not in the humor section here. I'd proceed in my OPEC Special behemoth and they'd move. If they stopped, still blocking the way, the wife would call 911 and I'd explain to them that teenagers don't scare me........since I've already had two!

    Where I live the teens are generally not a danger...........if I was in bad area (I avoid these, mind you) say, in Miami, Boston, San Antonio, Houston.......etc. I'd do much different.

    Well - depending on time of day and location - it might be solved with a toot on the horn - or that could produce a hail of incoming bullets!!!

    My old cop-out - I'd play it as I saw it.

    Be aware and get ready to use the truck w/ brushbar to my advantage. Also the driving class I took taught us how to backup and evade.

    What I Would LIKE To Do...

    And what I should do, are two very different scenarios! The little '$$$$$' need a professional attitude adjustment, but in today's world it is a better judgement call to go around, avoid, make a turn, or even back's a lose/lose situation...sad world we live in...I'll save my ammo for when there's NO retreat!
