Car Hijacking Tactics

Have you heard about the tactic where they throw eggs on your windshield? Unsuspecting people who turn on the wiper will spread albumen and yolk all over the windshield, creating an obstructing white film. Forced to stop your car, the attackers will then come over and do their thing.

It is these type of cases that make me thankful for having an old-fashioned car. Some newer cars have an auto-sensing feature, where the wipers automatically turn on at the sign of moisture. If you have such a car, I suggest turning it off. After all, how difficult is it to flick a switch when it pours?
