So you've given up on leaving mirrors dangling?
That came later. All I can say is don't let motorbike cops see you do it.
I was able to make the case that the breakage was accidental and that I merely meant to flip the mirror to tell the guy to get out of my my space and quit abusing me (all of which was true fortunately) so it it didn't go any further. Hed been tailgating me closely and when I obeerved to him when stopped at the T intrersection "You were a bit close mate." he lurched his vehicle right next to me blocking the intersection and gave me a mouthful for being "in the middle of the road" to justiffy what he did.
But criminal damage charges would have been ugly, with with career consequences.
We all joke about getting even for being bullied by loser drivers but it's better by far to use cameras and play the legal system to your advantage.
