Now, while we understand what the biker did is completely stupid and even life-threatening, we must address that no one has the power to beat up anybody on the street.

Why Not Light Cigarettes at Petrol Pumps?
People must understand, that at petrol pumps, there are gasoline/petrol vapours in the air. These are, obviously, not visible to the naked eye. If anyone lights a match or a cigarette, there is the danger of these vapours catching fire as they are highly inflammable, especially in the vapour form. For those who don’t know, even inside the engine of the car, the petrol is only burnt in the vapour phase and not in the liquid phase. Therefore, make sure to turn OFF the engine and stay away from any smoke or lighter while at the petrol pump.
