Taken From His Car and Assaulted

Posted on

“He’s taken out of the car. He is assaulted,”

We hear a lot in the media about road rage and dangerous drivers. What we don’t hear much about is how defenseless we are while behind the wheel. We are seat belted in our cars, with our legs in front of us, a steering wheel and a dashboard. We are facing forward with very little room to maneuver.

There isn’t much we can do to defend ourselves in the event of an attack on us while we’re driving. It takes only seconds to smash your car’s windows and rip you from your vehicle, yet the police are more than several minutes away and likely haven’t been dispatched yet. I’ve personally witnessed the driver of a car in front of me get out of his car, walk up to the next car yelling and screaming and beat on the driver’s window. It is a nerve racking experience when only two people are involved in the dispute; I can only imagine what it was like with many aggressive bikers revving their motors, hitting your vehicle, slashing your tires and then assaulting and pulling you from your car.

Our hearts go out to Alexian Lien, his family and everyone injured during the event.
