A worrying new trend has emerged in Johannesburg where everyone is targeted and the callousness of thieves can only be matched by their brazen behavior. Recently, this article has gone viral online, drawing attention to this phenomenon, but this is the case with most crimes in South Africa, and they will be forgotten.

leave a large enough gap between the cars for a quick escape; You always need an escape route.
If attacked, obey the orders of the looters and do not make sudden and quick movements.
