You are driving and you spot a (supposedly innocent) person being held at gunpoint by several dangerous men.

There is not much time left for the innocent person.

What do you do?

Why is there no option to call the police and stall the situation?!

Trying to run them over is not the best move. Same goes for stopping the car and getting out. For all you know, they may be undercover cops in the process of making an arrest, and that interference could get one or more of them killed. Pull over, make the call, and if the situation allows it, double back and observe. At the very least, you can try to act as a witness to what occurs, and report what you see to the operator.

Call law enforcement. Point the car at the thugs (assuming there's room for it). Put headlights on high beam and honk your horn for an extended duration. Proceed to option 1 or something else, depending on the reaction of the thugs.

Anybody who says they'll stop the car is a fool or a liar.

Make the call.

Call the police. As much as you may want to help, it's best to leave this to people that are trained for these kind of situations.

I'm surprised so few people voted to run them down. You think the cops will arrive in time or you can kung fu their gun away?

dial 911 and drive away. I dont know about you but I would not want to drive into anyone and get charged with vehicular manslaughter.

Right answer, right reasoning, this is exactly what one ought to do in such a situation.

Pull over to a safe distance, and call police. If the person gets shot than help them once the bad ppl leave. You no good to the person in trouble if your dead.

drive past, and call the police and hope for the best...


I'm not trained to help someone in a hostage situation, and so I'm not getting into that mess.
