    Two dunces...I hate to say it.

    Fail to pull over and wonder why guy follows you.
    Aggressor was clearly out of line.

    Pull over after a "plain" accident and report it to the police...don't look like you're trying to evade. The rest was just so far out of line you aren't coming up with any "plan"...just don't endanger the other members of the public with your driving.

    That's not an antenna, that's an aerial.

    You never know what you might start when you brake check someone.

    Two dunces is correct. First, the aggressor in the black car. the other is you. This guy (victim) was doing everything he could do to get away from the aggressor who was clearly bent on causing property and possibly bodily harm. I would have attempted to get away from him at first, but as soon as he made it clear that he was not going to stop, I'm afraid that it would be time to stand my ground.

    hahaha......good stuff. Feel free to let us all know how many incidents like this you've experienced...I can count a few low-speed pursuits in my cruiser. As mentioned by the more astute among us, what happened prior to the footage being showed? Brake check? Maybe, maybe not.

    When you're involved in an accident you pull to the right (usa) and wait for the police. As I stated the "aggressor" was totally and utterly out of line, however during the first few moments he pulled along side the victim and pointed...apparently indicating that he should pull over. Based on "only" what was available on the vid, he should have at least pulled over and determined if the guy was a loon. If you have to bluff, yell over and say the police are already on the way...follow me to the commuter lot or whatever.

    As far as his driving, the faster you go, the more likely death will result when an accident occurs. You're not outrunning anyone. I've pursued enough cars to realize what technique works and which ends with a collision.

    On a side note, in car recorders can be had for around $50 now. Not a bad investment...may clear up some things.

    I would have waited until he was between his vehicle and mine.

    Then he would be unable to move until the police got there!

    I've got an in-car recorder aimed out my windscreen that runs whenever my vehicle is on for this very reason. There are far too many loons on the road these days...

    Yep selfdefense is illegal in Aussy town now a days! You must be a victim. Mr. Road rage would have caught a few rounds here! Funny you only see this type of behavior in the Gunfree zones here as well I wonder why?:whistling:

    First, twice I have encountered something similar, though not quite to the maniacal capacity as the aggressor in this particular video.

    Second, the more astute of us would know that it is "footage being shown, not showed, so when you're going to attempt to call someone out and allude to them not being as intelligent as you, make sure you're intelligent enough to make that work for you.

    Third, it doesn't matter what parts we have not seen. I know of no incidents that actually make it ok for the aggressor to act as he did. Even if it were an accident that the "victim" was trying to flee from, we've spoken QUITE OFTEN of it here on GT that pursuing is not a good idea in the best of circumstances. If you're involved in a hit and run as the victim, the best course of action would be for you to record everything, license plate etc, and report it to the police... not go on and act like a crazy person and place yourself in the position of being the aggressor where the possible use of deadly force may be authorized against you due to your insane actions.

    If you were LEO, and astute, you would know this.

    Police think an in car recorder is a terrific idea up until you catch them on video breaking the law, giving bogus tickets, and disgracing their position of office. before the flaming starts, head over to youtube and watch the thousands of videos posted of police acting criminally themselves.

    What would everyone here do if you were the victim in this video and you had a handgun. I would likely shoot out one of the criminal's tires.
