Anti CarJacking Tips

Anti CarJacking TipsCarjacking is the crime of motor vehicle theft from a person who is present. Typically the carjacker is armed, and the driver of the car is forced out of the car at gunpoint. The word is a portmanteau of car and hijacking.

Last Updated - 30th November 2006

This crime has become more common, since cars a number of years back have unbreakable theft protection (transponder in the key). In the EU, mandatory since 1998. Therefore a car thief must get the car key to steal a car.

The crime is extremely hazardous to the physical safety of both the carjacker and victim. The victim may be able to outmaneuver the carjacker and run over him, or if armed, shoot him. To secure compliance, the carjacker may shoot the victim or physically push the victim out of the driver's seat without ensuring that the victim has fully separated from the vehicle. In turn, many people have been entangled in their seat belts or the front grille, and were then dragged to death.
