Would this be legal?...

While driving downtown today, the car I was following slowed to a stop for several seconds. I stopped behind him and noticed he was pointing out one of the stores to his passenger. He then went to go, but stopped again for more discussion with his passenger. I assumed he didn't realize he was blocking the lane of traffic so I assisted him with a "courtesy beep" of the horn (so short it was almost indistinguishable).

Well, the driver took quite the offense to this and flew the one-finger salute at me out his window.

So my HTA question is this...

Since I was in my big super-cab 4X4 F150, is it legal to lock in the 4WD, mash the gas, and push his little POS Kia sideways down the street until it becomes crushed up against a concrete wall? (as long as I don't speed?)

I was about to do just that, but thought I should run it by the experts here first.

Well, I would have just popped a wheelie and run him over (assuming your engine is ballsy enough to do it), but in any case, it would probably fall under stunting:

Effing laws keep trying to ruin our fun :(

I believe the former AG Michael Bryant decided that this was legal when the offending vehicle was a bike.

It shouldn't be hard to argue that a Kia and bike are similiar enough to warrent the same treatment. :lol:

The considerate "city-driver" thing to do would have been to show him the errors of his way. If a physical beating could not be done then a simple; pull up beside him, scream obscenities at him and his family and peel away; should do it! :lol:

He had just returned from a vacation in Yellowstone National Park and hadn't readjusted his driving habits. :evil:

Also don't forget throwing heavy, blunt objects (bricks, hammers) at/into the car. :shock:

Pennies and spark plugs are more effective :twisted:

And so are semi-full cups of timmies coffee/tea/hot chocolate. :oops:

Really, I just lost my grip while giving an insane driver trying to drive me out of my small lane on Main St East in Hamilton the Birdie.

My timmies cup and its contents landed on his windshield by accident.

He slowed down. :twisted:

Pennies and spark plugs are old rider tricks (even though they're not really used these days).. Pennies will bounce over the hood and create lots of small dents.. A spark plug will in 95% of the cases render a windshield irreparable.

Note to self: Don't get Marquisse angry. :shock: Although, that was pretty funny. If I had witnessed it, I think I would have made a point of getting his attention and telling him what a nice windshield he had.

Actually, you just explained something that I'd been wondering about. One of my former co-workers rides a Harley everywhere during the summer, and when he was showing us the bike he had a little bag of old spark plugs in a side pouch. :shock: He was asked about it: "Repair kit?" "Nope, that's for a****** drivers." Never realized what he meant until now. :shock:

That reminds me of this:http://www.windsorstar.com/sports/2010wintergames/skeleton/Driver+ticketed+flipping+bird/1858768/story.html


and this excerpt.....
Quote:
The driver was stopped by Northumberland OPP and issued a ticket.

As he was pulling away, he flashed a one-finger salute at the officer, who then stopped the vehicle again.

The man was issued a second ticket for making an improper hand signal, an offence that carries a $110 fine.
