Once you know which areas to avoid and know which cars are generally targeted the most, it is important to have a good basic working knowledge of what to do in situations such as these should they arise.

Knowledge is power – Not paranoia!!

 
 

It is not being paranoid if you like to know where you stand safety-wise when you travel around Cape Town. Putting your safety first by learning about where to avoid and how to be more careful is smart.

“We would like to emphasise the need for caution among road users and also offer some suggestions to increase vigilance on our roads. Even though there are no guarantees to safety – we believe road users could be safer when being more vigilant on the road and by driving non-distracted.” – says the AA.

 

Once you know which areas to avoid and know which cars are generally targeted the most, it is important to have a good basic working knowledge of what to do in situations such as these should they arise.

Knowing when to defend yourself and how, knowing what to do should you have a gun on your person (licenced of course) and when to rather let your car go and protect yourself. These are traumatic events and keeping a cool level head is always your best bet. Have a plan of action in mind so that you do not go into a panic state when it happens to you.
