In light of the high hijack statistics, it is pertinent that every South African should know exactly what to do if hijacked in the same way that we know how to read and write.
MasterDrive’s Urban Survival Xperience (USX) trains drivers and passengers in these skills. The course shows individuals how to be aware of potentially dangerous situations. The reality, however, is that no one can guarantee a driver will never be a victim of a carjackinging and, for this reason, it teaches one how to handle and react to a scenario like this.
Drivers encounter many other dangerous situations on the roads. Whether this is facing criminals at a traffic lights or being followed, every possible way that a driver’s personal safety can be threatened is considered. The training is developed based on the experience of police officers and other experts.
This course includes both theoretical and practical training that shows:
- Drivers how to be aware of their surroundings and potentially avoid dangerous situations
- How to safely extract themselves and passengers during a hijack experience
- Drivers to handle other threats to their safety on the road
The training helps empower every person with the knowledge to keep themselves and their families safe on the roads.
