This disturbing release has come from ROSPA (Advanced Drivers Association). It seems some people will stop at nothing to get you to stop and then they can rob and beat you. Please read on and pass on to all you know. Its just a shame those who would be inclined to stop and help will no longer do so. In true grumpy old man style “Nothing is safe any more!” Read on;
“While driving on a rural end of the roadway on Thursday morning, I say and infant car seat on the side of the road with a blanket draped over it. For whatever reason I did not stop, even though I had all sorts of thoughts running through my head. But when I go to my destination, I called the Police and they were going to check it out. But this is what the Police advised even before they went to check it out…..
There are several things to be aware of… gangs and theoives are now plotting different ways to get a person (mostly women) to stop their vehicle and get out of the car.
There is a gang initiation reported by the local police where gangs are placing a car seat by the road…with a fake baby in it… waiting for a woman to stop and check on the abandoned baby.
Note that the location of this car seat is usually beside a wooded or grassy area and the person ..woman.. Will be dragged into the woods, beaten and raped and usually left for dead. If it’s a man they are usually beaten and robbed and maybe left for dead too.
DO NOT STOP FOR ANY REASON. DIAL 999 AND REPORT WHAT YOU SAW BUT DO NOT EVEN SLOW DOWN.
If you are driving at night and eggs are thrown at your windscreen DO NOT STOP TO CHECK THE CAR, DO NOT OPERATE THE WIPERS AND DO NOT SPRAY ANY WATER as eggs and water become milky and block your vision up to 92.5% and you are then forced to stop beside the road and become the victim of these criminals.
This is a new technique used by gangs, so please inform your friends and relatives. These are desperate times and these are unsavoury inndividuals who will take desperate measures to get what they want.”
