The problem of carjacking in the Sevare-Mopti region has intensified in recent months and is getting so bad that some organizations are painting their vehicles in fluorescent colors so they can be identified when stolen, others are replacing SUVs with pickups (with limited success), while others are replacing new vehicles with old, beat-up ones. Enclosed four-wheel-drive vehicles are the most popular targets, including Toyota Land Cruisers and Nissan and Mitsubishi SUVs. There are many common-sense ways to try to avoid becoming a carjacking victim, but if you are confronted by armed carjackers, donÂ’t resist.
