    After seeing that....my personal feelings aside....my truck is mine and not some company truck. I would protect my truck by stopping WAY before that and that is that. I would wait as long as it took. Assuming they didn't charge my truck that is. I would have stopped when I first saw that crowd. I would not have touched the horn and drawn attention to myself. Just my 2 cents.

    By you mentioning flamethrowers, makes me think of Elon Musk and one of his companies. He made a “not a flamethrower”

    Flamethrower — The Boring Company

    I like this one better, though. It’s napalm compatible

    When its threatening your life and other help would be not available or arrive in time, yes my life would matter more than what lane im supposed to use, its not difficult to figure out....

    What law ??? The driver isn't supposed to go make their delivery?? This is America and BLM doesn't run it nor own the streets, in fact we truckers pay for the roads with all the taxes and tolls we pay.....and this is a mail truck which is federally protected so they were actually the ones breaking the law....but hey why talk about the details....its more fun to pile on the driver and blame them instead of the animals in the street without a permit by the way
