Road side menace be aware of car jackers

Post by pro_roadtrip » Thu Feb 15, 2018 1:15 pm

Hi .. The road is my third wife.. (I'll tell u the first 2 later) and more than half of my time is spent on the road travelling cross country discussing road trip experience with other traveller's I meet on the way.. ... Anyways here's few tips to keep yourself safe from car jacking and theft

1. Keep all windows rolled up when ever u park on the side of a busy or unknown street.. (Have seen passer by picking up stuff from cars when windows are rolled down and passengers are busy in their mobile phone or just day dreaming)

2. Fallen cash : This one is very unique.. and daring style .. In a situation where you have parked your car on a side of a busy street.. with windows down and 3 passengers (2 in front 1 at back ..)
A man will come to driver side window and tell u that some cash is fallen outside the door and when u see out side your car u will see few lower value currency outside your door, at this time Everyone's attention is at the driver side, at that time another guy come to that side of the car where no one is paying attention and flicks stuff from the car .. and I saw this happening at Shirdi..
3. Greed trap :
Fallen carton box or grain or rice full of gunny bags
This is an age old techniques but still people fall prey
This happens at mostly at lonely road side and country side drive.. never ever ever ever ever stop to pick it up thinking that today is your lucky day .. They will allow u to pick it up just to see how many people are there in the vehicle.. And once they feel they can over power you.. that's when your lucky day changes into a nightmare .. Gang of minimum 8 will just beat u up.. not to death.. and rob u completely but not the car... Vulnerable places ... Chakan road at night.. beed Latur towards Nagpur.. some parts of UP and Chattisgarh...

A variation of 2 what happens in NCR - modus operandi is known as "Thak-Thak Gang". If the driver's window is rolled down, one person or a kid will come and knock on the passenger side. Your attention turns towards that side and quickly a hand will come in from the driver side and pick up your wallet/mobile from the dashboard.

Another one is "oil slick". You'd not even notice when one biker would come an pour some oil/coolant near the front grill. Couple of minutes later, another biker would follow to tell you about oil spill and fumes (which you then notice). You stop your car to check and get over-powered by a gang of 4+ - cash/valuable/maybe even car will be gone.

And of course the most common one is when just 500 meters before a puncture shop, they'll spread the nails on road to increase their business.

sirji tyre puncture ka new style ...

If u stop at a road side puncture wala to fill air in your car tyres and .. u wouldnt come out to see what he is doing ,, thats when he will the strike.. road side puncture wala keeps a instrument called TOCHA... so when u r in the car guy will pierce few holes only on one tyre .. minimum 2 or 3 puncture and say SAHAB tyre to puncture hai ..and we know whats the cost now a days to repair one puncture .... sometimes including a valve replacement ... .. so road tripper advice is to fill air at fuel pumps or at tyre replacement shops
