I drive that route all the time and have never felt unsafe. Sure, it is not the most aesthetically pleasing drive, but I doubt things like this happen that often. Newark, on the other hand....

If you didn't already know this, then you were asking for it taking a expensive car there.

Hate to dig up this old thread, but I'm pretty sure I met these guys when we had the gas shortage after the hurricane. 3 guys in a black mercedes c300 tried to jack my car at a gas station by the holland tunnel. They didn't pull out a gun nor were they successful, but still be careful out there guys.

Good to know the NJPD are on the job! Maybe they're hoping the guys will die of old age. No fear though... When they finally kill someone I'm sure it will get higher priority.

I have been living in downtown Jersey City for almost two years now and felt really safe up until this thread. That stretch of 1-9 and the gas stations by the Holland Tunnel are very heavily traveled quite shocked this happened there. I would expect to see this type of stuff towards the center of town. I'll be sure to keep a look out!

Damn man, glad nothing happened. Yea, when I called the cops, they took it pretty seriously - I talked to 2 detectives and forensics that night (no fingerprints or anything was found unfortunately since they had gloves) but the they said this was a pretty common occurrence in jersey city.

Apparently cops are too busy giving 5MPH speeding tickets in GSP to care.

My advice? get out of NE states people, the cops don't care and the law won't let you protect yourself. Come down to sunny FL, where if you approach our cars with a ski mask and a weapon, we can legally blow you away =)

Beamers are getting stolen in large number throughout the UK,

My BMW M3 E92 2008 fully specced fully loaded and I mean all the extras from the book incl M-drivers package, EDC, Mdrive, TV, best hifi etc etc 25k extras,
well stepped out from my door on Wednesday this week here in Central West London and car was gone, no trace no glass, nothing, ok they hacked the car but how do they get it off this island so easily, police sent me an email a day later "we have stopped our active investigation" Cannot believe this BS from the Police..

I mean the bad guys are storing the cars somewhere or shipping them off the island, but yet on this tiny island, police is not getting any results in tracing my car or other stolen cars..weird

wow girl, thats really scary.. Where ever you were going it doesn't matter. You are safe, unharmed, and apparently you knew who was around you showing that you are observant. Next time you get that "feeling" just call the cops and don't stop. Stay safe..

Police do investigate carjackings. It's not overnight that these guys get caught and put away. Police can chase them for a short while, but the carjacked vehicles are usually highend and will usually smoke a police car. There's also a lot of liability during a chase where innocent people can get hurt. It's usually the same carjacking crews that go around comminting these crimes, they usually wear all black, cover their faces and are armed. A tactic they use is to tap your rear bumper so you pull over and they take your car. I'm in law enforcement and these are a few things I do:
A: I never take my m3 anywhere questionable.
B: I have my windows tinted, dark, for some reason cars with tinted windows do not get jacked often, I tend to believe that they don't know who's inside and there may be some fear there.
C: never tailgate, always leave some space where if shit hits the fan, you can quickly cut the wheel to the right or left and just gun it til you get out of the situation.
D: I always take my "friend" wherever I go.
