So this is happened close by. A guy was targeting someone else while driving and hit several other vehicles. This reminds me of those videos where ISIS was doing the same thing in Iraq and Syria. Also of a book I read that I forgot the name of now...
If I was on a highway and saw someone hanging out of the window and shooting at other cars I would get out of the area and pull to a safe place and call the police.
What would you do in this scenario?
What would I do? Given its a residential area (casing found on sidewalk), I'd pull over, get out of the car, and run between the houses.
When seconds count, help is only 18+ minutes away!
Most people wouldn't even know what was happening. Radio would be so loud they couldn't hear anything outside and they would be so busy looking at their phone they wouldn't see anything either.
Not sure what I would do since it depends on if I were behind the shooter like in the picture or in front (watching my rear view is just something I do a lot). If behind I'm going to slow way down, dial 911, and stay out of it. If in front I'm going to find out just how fast a Chevy Sonic can go.

That depends on lots of things, but here's a short list along with a couple of thoughts on responses.
Am I alone or with family?
In front or behind and how close?
3/4 ton diesel pickup or my Buick?
Exit stage right ASAP would be an acceptable response no matter what the answer to the above questions.
If I were in the place of the car just ahead and to the left of the shooter I would shift to the right and do a power stop to get him ahead and to my left. That puts the bulk of his vehicle between us and makes an awkward angle for him to target me. If it truly is a random shooter, he will most likely shift to an easier target. If not, it gives me a better position to return fire if needed.
Alone and in the pickup in that same position I might consider taking his vehicle out by letting him rear end me when I do that power stop.
7000lb truck vs 2500lb car with him hanging out the window his chances of coming through the collision without injury are pretty slim.

Break then swerv into his car crushing him between the two cars? I mean if we're going action movie why not go all the way?
Anything that will put distance between the shooter and me.
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.
"Don't forget, incoming fire has the right of way."
A 9MM MAY expand to .45 but a 45ACP will never shrink to 9MM.
If he's driving, pull over and duck till he's out of range.
I didn't attend his funeral, but I sent a nice letter saying I approved of it.
Witness on being asked if she could ID the person, "I just saw a guy with a hoodie hangin out the window".
Isn't it about time to make hoodies open season?
In front of him? Make like LimaCharlie. Behind him, pull over, let him gain some distance.

A lot of people have died on the expressways going through Chicago. This might be how some thugs prove themselves to the gangs. I wonder if a lot of the cars that get shot in Illinois aren't shot as they pass by because they have bullet holes that look like they are in from the side. At least that is what I see on the news. They need to show the thugs on I-35 what happens to them when they get caught otherwise it will become a game. Most people probably don't know that they are getting shot at until it is too late.
I would go the other way.. Turn, stop, ( whatever)
