The UK authorities allowed the police to shoot to kill drivers using the car as a weapon against civilians, reports the BBC.
Earlier British police had an unwritten rule prohibiting shooting at drivers of moving vehicles, so as not to aggravate the situation.
However, after the attacks in nice and Berlin, and most importantly after the recent terrorist attack in London, where the terrorists used vehicles for assaults on passers-by, this rule has been canceled.
Recall, March 22 terrorist Khalid Masud driving a Hyundai car intentionally drove onto the sidewalk on Westminster bridge and began to press passers-by. In the attack, 5 people were killed and several dozen were injured.
