An attempted courier robbery in Bromhof in Randburg, Gauteng was caught on CCTV cameras and it could have ended a lot differently if the victim did not act fast. 

In the footage, one can see a truck on the side of the road, which means the courier driver had to stop and give way to oncoming traffic.

However, the vehicle, which was meant to pass, stopped in front of the courier vehicle and another vehicle stopped behind it. 

A man approached the delivery vehicle, but the driver reversed into the getaway vehicle behind.

Tips to prevent a hijacking: 

Avoid being distracted and focus on the road and the safety of people in the vehicle. Plan your route to avoid driving on roads you did not intend to drive on and constantly check who is following you. 

Know your neighbours, keep your driveway free of places where perpetrators can hide, and ensure it's well-lit. Remember to lock doors when driving.
