I was at the upton mcdonalds last nite goin through the drive through and when I got past the last window 2 chav fuckin scumbags walked in front of the car and 1 started saying something to me. I ignored him and moved off again, looked around and he was walking towards my car shouting something then he put his hand in his coat and pulled a massive kitchen knife out and carried on walking towards the car holding the knife and like slashing at thin air as he was walking. Cant put a description up as he had his hood up and a scarf covering the bottom half of his face. Just a warning coz I know a lot of modified car owners go to upton mackies.

If you're in the car, surely the first thing to do would be too close the windows and lock the doors. If they then tried to gain entry to the car, i would then drive off, whether people were standing in front of the car or not.
running him over would be considered reasonable force in the situation...no issues there.
it is nice to have an expert opinion here to wether or not using your car would be allowed.
hmm..hes threatening your life..you are allowed to take reasonable steps to defend it...and therefore if it was a case of i was scared..and floored it to escape...not a problem...as long as you told us about it asap! I shall not divulge particular persons involved..but shall we say i was aware of a very similar instance happening..and in court there was no problems....
