Dear Editor: I am writing this letter so that you can bring more awareness to the public, to be alert of vehicles on the road, and people in their surroundings.
I am a female driver and was followed by a green 1995 model Mitsubishi Lancer two days ago on my way home from work in the afternoon. It was not even 5 o’ clock yet.
The vehicle was on my tail in traffic on the highway and also when I turned into the gap leading to my home. I slowed down, the vehicle did the same. I pulled to the side of the road and the vehicle did the same behind me.
About a minute later, the vehicle reversed and turned to go in the opposite direction. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the number plate and inside of the vehicle looked very dark so I couldn’t see inside.
I also found out that some nights ago, a friend of a colleague of mine, was driving on the main road at about 11:00 p.m., when two vehicles without number plates tried to block her on the road. One was in the front and one in the back.
These incidents are causing persons to be nervous about their surroundings. And pretty soon, persons will be taking action to protect themselves by any means necessary.
We cannot be living like prisoners in our country.
This is a cause for concern to me and other persons, not just females. I wanted the public to be aware and to be on their guard.
