It’s a really good idea to carry a can of Fix-a-Flat (or have a spare tire) so you can get going again quickly in the event you have a flat tire. Otherwise, you might find yourself surrounded be “heroes,” as here:
The “heroes” force the man out of his car and badger him with obnoxious questions he rightly declines to answer, asserting his right to travel when and where he wishes without having to explain where he is going – or why – to armed government workers, aka “heroes” or “law enforcement.”
The “heroes” do not like this, of course.
To them, it’s suspicious – and an affront to their Authority – to not answer questions and to assert one’s right to be left in peace. These creatures speak English, but their tone is German . . or Russian.
You will talk.
Their bullying is almost unconscious in the sense that they don’t seem to even grok that what they are doing is bullying. Rather, they seem genuinely baffled by their victim’s uppityness.
These armed government geeks really do see themselves as “serving” and “protecting” – which is of the same currency as describing Social Insecurity taxation as a “contribution.”
What will it take to change this?
Probably, something none of us really wants – but which appears to be the only thing “heroes” understand.
