Re: Missing the obvious

You may want to consider what happens if you badly injure someone by taking this course of action.

Nothing will happen - it's my right of way and they're hurtling towards me unable to take timely evasive action ensures that my self defence actions are justified and appropriate.

Had they given way where required, I'd not be able to push them off.

If they could take timely avoiding action, I'd not be able to push them off.

Were they a safe distance away, I'd not be able to push them off.

Sorry, but this will come down to self defence every time. If in the course of protecting myself the aggressor is accidentally inured, well, whose fault is that? The alternative of being crippled or killed by one of these clowns isn't appealing. Sorry.
