Over in South Africa, they have a rather merciless anti-carjacking device because hijacking has been such a horrible problem over there. Motorists can have their cars fitted with a set of flamethrowers underneath the car. When a car jacker approaches the motorist's window, they can stomp on a pedal that sends a wall of flames up both sides of the car, efficiently repelling the would-be car jacker.

I would just love to see that "anti-theft" device in action

I started locking my car when I lived in Shreveport due to all the car jackings downtown and this is where I worked. Now it's just a habit and I never leave my purse on the seat because they will break your window to get it and by the time the shock of it happening goes away they have your purse. I leave my purse at my feet or in the backseat and I have a coupe so there is no back window close to see the purse.

I know this is an old thread, but I just got an e-mail the other day that convinced me otherwise. I don't always lock my doors depending on where I am.
This e-mail got me to thinking.... I guess there's a few wackos who thought about how to get in a locked car. When they see you in the vehicle they will come up to the window and ask you to roll it down trying to give you money they say you dropped.
Don't fall for it ladies, it's just another scam!

The people who really make me nervous in parking lots are those who are walking around trying to act like they are selling you something. Those are the ones I hurry to get away from. In the Target parking lot last year I actually watched a man dressed like a woman try to talk an old lady into a ride. I was putting my groceries in my car and for some reason they caught my eye. Our cars were parked almost head to head. So when I got in my car to leave I just sat there and watched. The she/man was talking to the woman as she was still trying to get out of her car and into the store and wouldn't really leave her alone. She/man kept showing the older lady something in her hand. It just looked extremely odd and out of place to me. The she/man ended up getting in the car with the woman! and I almost hyperventilated because I knew in my heart "Oh no this is not good." So I threw my car into reverse and drove up behind them before they could move to get the license plate number. They continued to sit there for a few minutes and I kept circling, but by this time the she/man had noticed me watching and she/man was watching me. So I parked my car head to head again with them and had my phone in my hand calling 911 because I knew it was a bad deal for sure. The she/man noticed me with my phone in my hand, getting out of my car and coming towards them. She/man bolted from that car like a rocket and began sprinting across the parking lot. She jumped into another car that was waiting across the lot and they took off. Well, the old lady was in shock and informed me that the person was trying to talk her into taking her to her "attorney's office" that was just right across the road. She/man supposedly had this money that she just had to get there RIGHT NOW and needed help. But the old lady was just a little nervous and kept asking her questions which is why they didn't leave right away. Long story short within a week there was a story about these people scamming in parking lots, getting people to give them a ride, and then they robbed them!!!!

P.S. There is no attorney's office right across from Targets. It's only a store called Lowe's.

You go girl. Good acts such as that are much needed and a purple heart for you taking a stand. Freaks every where you look these days.

Wow ! Tbelle, that's one incredible story. Sounds like you saved someone from havin' a really lousy day for sure. That's one thing to be said, about everyone havin' a cell phone today. And most of them have cameras built in as well.

another way of hijacking in shreveport/bossier

i received an email about another way to hijack cars...copied from email


Please note that we have received this bulletin from the Shreveport
City
Police, and are passing the information along to as requested.

NEW WAY TO DO CAR JACKING'S (NOT A JOKE)

Heads up everyone! Please keep this circulating...You walk across the
parking lot, unlock your car and get inside. You start the engine and
shift
into Reverse.

When you look into the rearview mirror to back out of your parking
space,
you notice a piece of paper stuck to the middle of the rear window.

So, you shift into Park, unlock your doors and jump out of your car to
remove that paper (or whatever it is) that is obstructing your view.

When you reach the back of your car that is when the car jackers
appear
out
of nowhere, jump into your car and take off. They practically mow you
down
as they speed off in your car.

And guess what, ladies? I bet your purse is still in the car. So now
the
carjacker has your car, your home address, your money, and your keys.
Your
home and your whole identity are now compromised!

BEWARE OF THIS NEW SCHEME THAT IS NOW BEING USED.

If you see a piece of paper stuck to your back window, just drive
away,
remove the paper later and be thankful that you read this e-mail.

A purse contains all kinds of personal information and identification
documents and you certainly do NOT want this to fall into the wrong
hands.
