Carjacking Defense: 3 Counter Ambush Tricks

Jeff Anderson
Jeff Anderson, Editor

It was a well-planned attack…

While driving through Baltimore City, MD, former CIA agent Jason Hanson, took a turn down a narrow street in an urban area.

Suddenly, a guy came out of hiding, ran up to his car, and tried to open the driver’s side door.

Jason immediately looked at him and accelerated… only to see a woman standing in front of the car, trying to block him in.

Swerving around the woman, he looked in his rearview mirror as he sped away and saw about 10 people rushing into the street, chasing after his car.

That kind of scenario is EXACTLY why Jason now helps people learn to defend against carjackings.

Here Are 3 Urban Counter-Ambush
Survival Tactics Against A Carjacking…

Carjacking Defense: Counter Ambush Techniques
Jason Hanson

Carjacking is the fastest growing and potentially the most dangerous of crimes trending today because according to police reports…

  • 54% of carjacking’s are by 2 or more attackers
  • 77% of the time a weapon is used
  • The majority of the time the weapon used is a gun

Perhaps more importantly, carjackings are PLANNED AMBUSHES — meaning the criminals already have their attack in motion before you even know you're in danger!

Jason's escape & evasion training provides several “secret” CIA defense tactics for threats like these.

Some of the most obvious things you can do are to always keep your doors locked and your windows rolled up when in “high threat” areas.

Everyone knows that, right?

But here are 3 little-known tricks Jason's course offers that you can use right away to give yourself the best chance for surviving a carjacking ambush…

1. The “10 Degree” Trick

Most people don't make full use of their side mirrors.

If you can see the sides of the car, your mirrors aren't positioned out far enough.

(Position your side mirrors about 10 degrees further out than normal so you can't see the sides of the car anymore.)

Carjackers know your “blindspots” and how to attack from the rear without you seeing them — so this helps foil that line of attack.

Use your rearview mirror for seeing directly behind, but your side mirrors for seeing further away from your vehicle.

2. Control Your Escape Route

When at a red light, make sure you can see the tires of the car in front of you.

If you can't see them, you're too close and likely boxed in.

If you can see the tires, though, you have enough room to go left or right (if there is no other traffic in the way).

That way, if someone tries to break out your window, you can floor it and you have somewhere to go.

3. The “PSI” Trick

Inflate your tires with 10% less air than P.S.I. listed on the sidewall.

This will give you more traction on the road for evasive driving should your carjackers pursue you and you need to escape.

It's also an old-school trick for dealing with slick road conditions.

If your car is bogged down and needs more traction, deflating the tires a little can help increase your ability to drive through the mess.

So there you have it: 3 great tips from one of the masters of the “spy game.”

As far as I'm concerned, they're the just the kind of “secret agent info” we need to gain an unfair advantage over the scumbag criminals targeting us as victims.

This is just the beginning, though.

Start planning to defend yourself NOW before somebody takes a run at you.

What's In Jason Hanson's Bug-Out Bag?

You've probably figured this out by now…

… I'm a “bugout bag junkie”!

There's a reason that the bugout bag serves as the core pillar of any serious survivalist's emergency plan

It contains all the supplies you'll need to face a short-term crisis, whether you're surviving in place or evacuating to a safer location.

And one of my favorite research tasks is to find out what other survival trainers are doing with their bugout bags based on their own personal backgrounds and experience.

That's why, for this week's podcast episode, I called up my friend (and former CIA “spy”) Jason Hanson to get a peek into what he packs in his own bag.

MCS 184 – CIA Escape & Evasion Abroad With Jason Hanson

My 15 y.o. son is headed on an overseas school trip (without my protection)…

Sure, I've taught him how to stay alert to dangers around him… become the “gray man” in any location… and how to defend himself if he needs to.

But should he find himself face-to-face with civil unrest, an abduction attempt, or a terrorist attack, he's going to need (as Liam Neeson puts it,) “a special set of skills”.

MCS 136: CIA “Gray Man” Tactics With Jason Hanson

Gray Man Survival Training

Gray Man Survival Training

I don't have to tell you that times have changed…

Thanks to the alleged “counterterrorist initiatives” of the government, citizens have been turned against one another to turn in anyone who might be suspected to be a “lone wolf extremists”.

Problem is, these “enemies of the state” that the government says to watch out for fits the description of our most patriotic Americans – “preppers”, citizens angry with an invasive government, and 2nd Amendment advocates!

In times of crisis, this makes us the most vulnerable to labeling… targeting… and an eventual knock on the door by an armored-up “goon-squad” looking to haul you in.

These new threats require those of us who believe in self-reliance during hard times to be “smarter” about how we prepare… and that means “going gray” (now!) to avoid being a target during times of civil unrest or a collapse.

And this week, former CIA operative, Jason Hanson, has some “field notes” to share with you on exactly how to live “under the radar”…
