A smash and grab crime is typically characterized by a criminal smashing through vehicle windows while the car is at a standstill either at a traffic light or while the driver is stuck in slow moving traffic and snatching valuables that are visible from the outside.
The horrific act puts the driver and passengers in a few moments of silent paralysis which allows them just enough time to get hold of your valuables and escape the scene. This leaves the motorist traumatized and makes them feel victimized for a long while.
Bellville Glass Centre has curbed this issue by offering smash and grab windows in Cape Town. How?
