If it happens to you...

• Don't argue. Give up your car, especially if you are threatened with a gun or other weapon. Your life is worth far more than the car.

• Get away from the area as quickly as possible.

• Try to get a good description of the carjacker. Note the sex, race, age, weight, height, hair and eye color, distinguishing features, and clothing.

• Report the crime as soon as possible to the police.
