Police warn of new ways hijackers are targeting drivers

September 11, 2019

VAAL TRIANGLE - The South African Police Service has warned road users to be aware of new tactics used by criminals to hijack vehicles, including mimicking traffic or police officials. The police said in a statement in some instances, unsuspecting motorists are stopped, robbed of their valuables and their vehicles hijacked by people who pretend to be traffic or police officials. Police also warned motorists to be cautious when travelling or stopping alongside the roads or when ordered to stop by other motorists who might seem to be in distress as that could be hijacking suspects. The National Hijacking Prevention Academy recently pointed out that it is increasingly difficult to steal locked motor vehicles due to new anti-theft technologies, which has led to a dramatic increase in vehicle hijackings.
