South African journalist and anti-crime activist, Yusuf Abramjee shared a truly sobering video on his Twitter page that shows an Audi driver thinking quickly and avoiding a possible hijacking situation.
In the video, it shows three cars driving up a road on a seemingly calm day. The first car abruptly stops and a hijacker jumps out of the passenger side and runs up to the Audi.
However, the Audi doesn't stop, and instead, it speeds up and avoids the criminal. The driver in the car in the back notices the commotion and reverses his car away from the hijackers.
Yusuf captioned the post:
