In these Obamanomics times it pays to keep alert and have a CHL with a good gun.

It's called a "carjacking". If you're being followed drive to a well lit area where there are people to be witnesses. Call the police. Always drive with your doors locked especially at night. There was a rage about 30 years ago when carjackers would steal your car at a red light in daylight! It's nothing new- just have to be careful at all times.
