Car Kidnapping – What To Do?

With all kinds of taxi drivers and transportation apps available, here are some tips should you come upon an unsavoury driver taking you places against your will.

IMPORTANT: Alert family (or friends) of your driver’s license plate and profile, starting point and destination at all times.

Before entering the taxi, passengers are advised to confirm that there is a license (with a photo) on the dashboard or the seatback, and that the driver matches the photo. Any problems with taxis should be reported immediately to the Land Public Transportation Commission (Suruhanjaya Pengangkutan Awam Darat or “SPAD”) at +6180-088-7723, aduan@spad.gov.my or www.spad.gov.my.

#1: GET OUT OF THE CAR

Use handbrake if necessary. Preferably in a crowded area. Escaping at a stoplight (or even at slow speeds) would be the best option

#2: CRASH THE CAR

Obstruct his vision. Dangerous and gets attention (especially in Malaysia the kepoh kaki’s will come like moths to a flame)

#3: BREAK HIS FINGERS

If he advances towards you.

#4: SIGNAL PEOPLE TO LET THEM KNOW

Make a sign or some kind of distress signal to other cars.

#5: CALL 999

This is the Malaysian Emergency Response Service (MERS). Even if you can’t talk, they can still track your call

Hope you guys learned something!

Thinking of: McD’s fried chicken.
