6. Keep those eyes peeled
When approaching your driveway, be on the lookout for suspicious vehicles/persons. This is very important as the majority of hijackers approach their victims in home driveways.
7. Know where your nearest police station is
Only pull over when it’s safe. Some syndicates use bogus police or traffic officers. In the event of being approached by an unmarked SAPS vehicle, you should switch on your hazards, put your hand out of the window, and indicate that they should follow you. Bogus police are driving unmarked white sedan vehicles with blue lights.
8. Don’t stop if you don’t feel safe. If your vehicle is bumped from behind and you do not feel comfortable with the individual involved in the situation, drive to your nearest police station and instruct the person to follow you there.
9. Reverse and drive away
If you encounter obstacles in the road such as rocks or tyres, do not get out of your vehicle to remove them.
