So, you’re driving down a highway really late at night, minding your own business. The highway is almost empty of traffic and you are driving around 65 MPH… Suddenly, you notice that a pick-up truck is following you. It pulls up along side of you
and starts swerving into your lane. Its a series of little swerves as if he intends to side swipe you, but doesn’t. You look over and you see the driver is doing this intentionally and his passenger is pointing at you trying to razz you. It looks like
they are either trying to play some strange game of chicken with you… or to force you to pull over, possibly to rob/carjack you.
You have a cellphone, but the reception is bad. There are no police around to witness this and there are no exits close by to use to pull off the road and find some. In the time it takes you to realize this, they just swerved again and this time
you had to swerve 1/2 way into the slow lane just to avoid being hit. You’ve managed to see the plate number, but notice that the license plate is tied on just on one side with twine and might be phony.
What would you do?
Also, what possible defenses or tactics can you think of to keep the psycho-in-a-pick-up-truck at bay until you can get to some police?
