However, this posts is trying to make the public to realize that the process is a scam and a new method adopted by the armed robber, in order to exposing people to danger, while driving on the road, by reducing their view.

Meanwhile, the post was flagged on Facebook as part of its efforts to combat false news and misinformation on its News Feed.


The full post claims:

"OFFICIAL MSG FROM POLICE: If you are driving at night and eggs are thrown at your windshield do not stop to check the car, do not operate the wiper and do not spray any water, because eggs mixed with water becomes milky and block your vision up to 92.5%, and you are then forced to stop beside the road and become a victim of these criminals. This is a new technique used by gangs, so please inform your friends and relatives. And most importantly do not be selfish and refuse to share this message."
