As if traffic isn’t bad enough … thieves are now targeting stuck drivers. It’s happening in Peru. The gang calls themselves “coyotes.”

When you’re sitting in traffic, they shoot out of nowhere, rob your vehicle and take off.  Police say they target taxis. But passengers in others vehicles were also robbed.

So far cops have arrested four people, three of them teenagers.
