South Africa is slowly becoming an unsafe place, despite being one of the countries with the highest crime rates in the whole world. The number of cases of car hijacking continues to surge drastically in the country, leaving residents terribly scared for their lives. Car drivers have confirmed that they are scared to drive at midnight out of fear of car hijackers.
What hurts the most is that they are all fatalities, the results of car hijacking. Survivors have confessed that car hijacking can leave one with physical and mental damage. It is indeed true that we are living in a country where someone else's property is not respected by greedy and selfish criminals.
According to Vehicle Tracker South Africa, a car hijacking survivor told police that he was almost hijacked on R80 road in Pretoria CBD between Soshanguve and Mabopane.According to the survivor, he was driving at around 4 a.m. in the morning when the attempted hijacking occurred. According to the man, the criminals threw stones at the window of his car and broke it. Bottles of beer have also been thrown at the tyres, leaving holes.
Fortunately, the driver managed to escape the hijacking scene and has reported the matter to the nearest police station. Many people have been complaining about the road on social media that they are scared of using it in the evening. People have also asked why traffic officers do not patrol the road during the night to protect the lives of people.
It is very heartbreaking to witness people losing their homes and property while criminals are being killed for their own property. The police must start investigating the road and more traffic officers and the police must be deployed to but wrote the road.
