'The Bump' is where the carjacker will intentionally bump your vehicle from behind, usually only lightly and at low speed to avoid any great damage. Inevitably, the victim will pull over, stop and get out to exchange insurance details. The carjacker's accomplice (who is usually the carjacker's passenger) will then make off with your vehicle and the carjacker will also speed off leaving you stranded by the road side.
'The Fallen Number Plate' is where the carjackers will follow you until you park. They will then unscrew the back number plate and wait until you drive off again. At some point, usually near a quieter stretch of road, the carjacker and his accomplice will overtake the victim and toot their car horn to attract the victim's attention. The victim will then notice this nice person waving the number plate which must have fallen off their car at some point. the victim will inevitably pull over and get out to retrieve the plate from this 'Good Samaritan'. The carjacker's accomplice will then make off with your vehicle and the carjacker will drive off leaving you once again stranded by the road side.

Assist instead by calling the Police to helpf you are bumped in traffic and the offending vehicle has more than just the driver, be suspicious of the accident. write down the vehicle's registration number and description.
