Out and about when attacked by a lout?

While I'm writing this on the train home from work (it's a miserable, rotten night), it's relevant becaus of a recent discussion on Melbourne Cyclist the last few days.

What should a rider do if hassled, bothered or otherwise threatened by a motorist? Obviously avoid any sort of collision first, but get there rego number asap!

Of course you do, but do you shout it to potential witnesses? Do you holler what the feral motorist has done or threatened?

Doing this then asking for a witness to corroborate your report to police makes for more likely success in getting police to prosecute. Keeping up with Luther riders makes for potential favourable witnesses, too.

"Help! Help! I'm being repressed! Look a' the violence inherent in the system!" Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
