Getting serious

There was another carjacking today from 2900 Block of Nelson St SE off Minnesota Ave SE. Not sure if they car that was used in the carjacking or was stolen, but one of the cars is a 1996 Cadillac Eldorado with DC Tags. For the record, this was not in PSA 606, but wanted to take this opportunity to give you some tips.

When driving stay alert. When you stop at an intersection, give yourself some room between you and the car in front of you to manveur. Make sure to use your side and rear view mirrors to be aware of your surroundings.

As far as I know all the carjacking have been at gun point. If you are carjacked, GIVE UP THE VEHICLE. A car is not worth your life. In each case the vehicle has been recovered within 48 hours. Follow their instructions and do not make any sudden moves.

Try to remember as much detail as possible. I understand it's a stressful situation, but try to remember the description of the vehicle and as much as the tag number.
