    Just what are you going to do if your vehicle gets stopped by a bunch of thugs on the highway? Wait to get pulled out and beat to death or run them over? I'm going to run them over if I have to protect mine and my family's lives.

    Protesters on roads are not protesters, they are rioters. Such people should be driven over or through.

    I agree 100% but so far it seems society and certainly the media disagree. I wonder about the law. NV was having problems with people jumping out in front of cars and suing so I believe passes a law that said if you aren't in a crosswalk you are fair game.

    I cannot see how anyone could prosecute you if you are trying to get away. They have no business in the road.

    U-turn before I get there, if I can. Everyone hates them, but I'm also not risking injury or prison for them.

    What are you going to do when there are so many that you get hung up and cant go any further? Then they surround your vehicle and start hammering away?

    As far as I am concerned, his only mistake was in stopping.

    Play it by ear, ‘judged by 12, or carried by 6’.

    In many modern cars, and some trucks you have no option. If it detects a object in front it will stop you. You can put the pedal to floor it will override you and stop. My first question. “How can I quickly override that?”
    Same as bump a car to trip fuel pump.
    If you can’t turn away. Hand on horn, foot on go pedal. Steer to avoid what you can. Do not stop until clear. Then ideally at PD or hospital if you are injured.

    Turn on your high beams, too. I’ve never tried your method - or the lights - on people, but geese scatter quickly. :)

    We have a 2019 or so Dodge Ram half ton, crew cab, at work. One morning I got in, started up, put it on reverse, let off the brake, started to roll back and the truck stopped itself, put itself in park and beeped at me. Second attempt, resulted the same.
    Come to find out, the reverse camera was frosted. Wiped camera off and was allowed to backup.
    Ridiculous!
    What if I needed to back over a zombie?!

    Another reason to not have the newest tech. All my cars are controlled by me and nothing else

    no turning around if you are on the freeway... a few years ago, some "protestors" had their hands concreted in drums across the freeway lanes. that is just plain asinine!
