Several incidents of spikes being placed on the roads by criminals aiming to damage vehicle tyres and attack motorists has led to a call by the Motor Industry Staff Association (Misa) for increased intervention from police.

The organisation also appealed for heightened vigilance from motorists, especially when travelling at night.

“(We need) more police visibility obviously, as we deal with drug cartels. If we know there is a crime, there are hotspots and we have mentioned three of the most important roads used by commuters, we know the time-frame where this is taking place and it is at night, we can expect the police to increase patrols,” Misa’s Sonja Carstens told broadcaster Newzroom Afrika on Tuesday morning.

Not our county burning at all. Not at all.
Guess MaryLou ( She is a pewpew) will get more outings.
 
Question, would you be stuck on the highway with a bear or a strange man...



//Flame suit -- Give it to me.
 
"My lady, me and my 4 friends were coming home from a party at midnight, and saw this car ahead with mechanical problems so we stopped behind them to see if we could help and they just started shooting at us"
- The hijackers, probably.
Doesn’t matter, but your life will be spared. Protect yourself first before you try to protect someone else if you want to live a long life.
 
Friends: Arm yourselves and carry your firearm.

Nobody is coming to save you.
Your comment is important and I hope people take your advice.

You are on your own out there. Look after yourselves people.
 
It helps if you keep a sawed-off shotgun as well. A blast from that scares off the hijackers pretty quick.

Especially when they see the head of one of the hijackers disappear and the neck starts spraying fountains.

It blows my mind, no pun intended, how middle-class South Africans will spend thousands on private security, car trackers, panic buttons, etc, but refuse to make the effort to get a firearm.

You cannot outsource your safety to another; it is unaffordable.

Our criminals are determined and brazen because the know the odds of facing deadly defence is nil.
