Even better. Pass a cop in the HOV. They flash the lights a second but never call for backup to be waiting at the other end for some reason. One of Pete's fav things to do.

Lot of what ifs there.. What if I had mexican food and farted in front of a car, it goes in the vent, gags the driver, passes out, launches off a bridge like the General Lee...Less tv for you.

What do you think that broken window will do when buffeted by turbulence at 75mph? Next time, try opening you rear window at hwy speed and feel the forces at play.

We are all free to do what we deem appropriate... and live with the consequences of our actions.

BTW, this is more like what some of you are talking about doing:

Front wind shield, yes. Side and rear windows, no. I've had my fair share of broken car windows. Last one was from a flying rock from our landscaper's mower. Glass fragments were all over the inside of our minivan, sitting static on our driveway. The bits were small but they are still sharp and can lacerate.

If yer close enough to kick, punch, lick, vibrate your weiner on the fender -
then yer close enough to zap it anywhere with a hand held taser. Shuts the car down like it was hit with an EMP.

True, unless they're tinted. And most are these days.

Ground is a misnomer in DC wiring. It is a Negative Return or Common. But, considering the way deep cycle battery tenders work by inducing a high frequency volatage through the battery for short bursts periodically a stun gun would likely desulphate the plates and help the battery. Lets try and see.....Someone else go first. But that high freq voltage might flip the ecu out. I say we try it on a scooter first.... Getting through the paint to the metal, now that would be inpressive.

Maybe we should just carry cattle prods. May not work on cars but works on bicycles and joggers. I can see central meet now.. "Test my leathers!"

Haven't been on 290 lately, but I-45 is usually as busy I imagine, It's why I like to ride in a somewhat aggressive manner, Not splitting the lane mind you, but constantly moving in and out of traffic, Or sticking to the fast lane..I was stuck in slow traffic the Other-day and had a Mini Cooper near merge into me and had my Horn not got her attention I would have been FCKD, 18 wheeler in front of me, Car NEXT TO me and RIGHT behind me.. Then the looks at me LIKE I'M the issue...ah well such is life, ANYWAY..that's just my .2 cents, Always keep moving or HOV lane and or fast lane.

The poster sexualtorture has the right idea using powerful lasers to shine in the eyes of drivers. That's right you really won't see me next time when your blind!

Many, if not most, trucks, SUV's and vans have factory tinted windows from the B-pillars back that are built into the glass - no film. That was the case with the our minivan - factory tinted glass that shattered all over.

Only passenger cars (sedans and such) don't come with factory tint. Archaic tinting laws.

Generally I don't "kick the " outta cars. I always make sure I have an out, and I use it more often than not. I will scream and curse and flip the bird etc....

I had a kid put me down on my ZX10 a few years ago, once I got up and got my wits about me he caught an whoopin. I felt bad about it, nobody pressed charges. Wasn't worth it in the end.
