Case in point:

I understand the normal, middle-class urge to do the right thing and address the person who hot your car and exchange insurance information.

The problem is, that makes you exit the relative safety of your vehicle and makes you more vulnerable to attack.

Read the situation.

If you must, stay in your car and call 9-1-1.  Wait in your vehicle until police arrive.

Don’t get out and expose yourself.

Don’t break your perimeter.

  1. One quibble with your advice here, J.Kb…
    If you must, stay in your car and call 9-1-1. Wait in your vehicle until police arrive.
    This happened in Oakland. Odds are the police won’t even bother to come, if they come at all, in a timely fashion. In that sort of environment, I would think driving away slowly, and then calling 911 to report what happened when you’re safely away, is safer than staying put. But knowing where you are is certainly part of maintaining situational awareness.
    Other than that, watching the video, all I could think was “belt-fed.”

    1. I understand your point. I worry that the DA will throw the book at you for a hit and run, even if you call and tell them why you fled the scene.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
