drive-by shootings

Explanation
Between January and October 1993, 139 people were killed in drive-by shootings and attacks on taxis in communities across the East Rand. Gunmen opened fire from fast moving cars, often shooting indiscriminately at people. This strategy was adopted by the IFP and other political groupings, and was designed to sow terror in the hearts of communities. Many such attacks were directed at mourners gathered at night vigils. All the shootings were marked by repeated allegations that the police failed to respond to calls for assistance, sometimes allegedly allowing the killers to drive through townships for several hours.

Sorry, no references to this term could be found in the tv series transcripts.
