New York Driver Confronts Protesters

NY driver Confronts Protesters

New York, NY – Today, an outraged driver gets out and pushes protesters blocking the Williamsburg bridge during rush hour traffic.

The driver says, “You’re disrupting traffic idiots, you can’t do that, it’s against the law,” and multiple people are yelling, “Run them over!”

He was obviously angered, and they’re lucky this didn’t escalate. It’s only a matter of time before this boils over.

Protesters blocked off the Holland Tunnel, Brooklyn Bridge, and Manhattan Bridge all at the same time. Unlike many recent protests, law enforcement stepped in and removed demonstrators.

He was clearly at his breaking point, and had someone pushed back, I have no doubt it would have ended differently.

What happens when a GROUP of drivers gets out and reacts to the protesters?

What happens if the person being blocked is a less “diplomatic” driver?

I’ve watched these groups up close and in countless videos. In reality, the makeup of these groups falls into 3 categories; fortunately, this was what I call “type 3,” the least aggressive.

I’ve already been embedded with group “type 2,” and this is a ticking time bomb.

We always talk about options, and if you watch carefully, you’ll see a protester trying to open his car door before he gets out. I understand the anger and frustration, but keep your doors locked and your windows up. Don’t get caught off guard.

If you get into this position, avoid letting them bait you, and getting out of your vehicle would not be my first choice. This group was out to annoy people, but some have no problem ratcheting things up a notch.
