    pt. 1 there… should the person come out or NOT come out of their vehicles? wouldn’t coming out increase the risk of being mugged!?

    does the police also mention (in their mail) any steps they are taking to increase patrolling in that stretch?

  2. B Dutta says:

    Point number 1 is dangerous. Please review the same.

    I think we should not come out of the car. If they get aggressive and start damaging your car, best thing to do would be to try hit them, make them fall off their bikes and running them over.

    There are hardly any chances of the muggers going to the police to complain. Even if they do, you will be out in no time once the police realizes you have done their job 😉
