If you are a driver, it comes naturally to want to help out a fellow motorist who has gotten stranded for whatever reason. Though a good deed, it comes with its own share of risks as not everyone is genuine. There are those who pretend to be stranded with the intention of robbing you. Mercy Murugi a Kenyan on Twitter narrates her experience on how she was almost hijacked this morning as she stopped to help out a stranded motorist.

In this instance it was her instincts and quick thinking which saved her, in as much as you would like to stop and help take care so that you don’t become a victim.
