If you run into shootings on the road, do what this guy did.
« on: January 11, 2020, 10:43:50 PM »
At 0:20 mins, his car appears from the oncoming traffic. The minute he heard the gun shots, he backed away right away but did not stay on the lane he had just come from; instead, he backed through the other lane. This avoids being hit by cars that are coming behind him.

Stay far away from the battle. It's not your battle.

He hasnít passed the scene. So, itís best not to cross the spot.

He backs away on his lane until near the turn where he would no longer can see behind him. That is not the side where the bullets are aimed at. Then when he is farther out, unreachable by handgun bullets, he switches to avoid other cars that might be speeding from behind him at the turn of the road.

Very good move.

you're probably right.  but lets look a couple things.

to do that, you'll have to stop, shift to r and gas, at the same time, either turning your head looking back or using the mirrors to look back.  that takes time.  of course, it has to do with your driving skills too.  some, I know can't back up as well as moving forward.  some, can drive backward as good as forward.  all that takes time.  and when it comes down to life and death situations, time is of the  essence.  wouldn't you think would be faster just to gas it.  also, good thing there wasn't a vehicle coming right around the curve.

another thing to look at is, we don't know the road after the cop car.  does it curve to the left(from the suv driver's point of view), does it go straight, or does it curve to the right.  curving to the left would definitely put driver of the suv in the bullets travel.  straight, still iffy.  curving to the right, should be safe due to travel away from the bullets of the gun man.

yes, the driver's action was appropriate... he was paying attention and paying attention bought him time.  He was able to maneuver out of the danger zone.
