In today’s world, it is almost impossible for you to be not in danger. Wherever you go, there is always that possibility of getting ditched. Yes, it is scary to think, but it is 100 percent true. Still, at the end of the day, it all boils down to how you react in such situations. Are you mentally and physically ready? Are you trained whatsoever? Do you have self-defense weapons readily available?

When it comes to this topic, perhaps the most interesting one is where taxi drivers or any other ride-sharing car drivers are involved. In fact, there have been countless reports of people getting victimized by drivers at gunpoint. They are lucky if they do not get hurt, but no one can really tell.

In an interesting video courtesy of Top Gear Philippines, we will breakdown the best ways in dealing a driver with a gun. This is most especially if the weapon is already pointed at your direction.

#1. Not sitting behind the driver, allowing the driver to easily point the gun, is actually a bad thing.

#2. Push the gun away using the left hand.

By doing so, you can prevent the possibility of harming the person at your left. This could be your friend, your wife, or even your kid.

#3. Grab the weapon and be sure to push it, so it aims downwards.

#4. Using both the hands and the body as defense.

#5. Apply some counter-attack measures.

They key here, however, is to always sit directly at the back of the driver, as this is the safest spot in a car. The driver will have a hard time reaching you and, more importantly, you can retaliate accordingly. You can even hit him in the head with ease if he tries to make some stupid moves.

Remember: in situations like this, it is better to be prepared. Furthermore, if you notice something amiss in your ride, do you best to get out of it before things get heated.
