Vehicle Safety Tips
When approaching you car, have keys ready -- fumbling for keys provides a window of opportunity for an attacker.
Be alert to your surroundings as you approach the car.
While driving, keep car doors locked at all times.
If you think someone is following you, try to get a description of the car and its license plate. Make a few turns. If the vehicle continues to follow, drive to a well-lit, populated place or to the police department.
Be suspicious of people approaching your car for directions or with flyers.
Be alert when using drive-up ATM machines.
If possible, carry a cell phone with you for emergencies.
If your car breaks down, raise the hood and tie a white handkerchief on the antenna as a distress signal. Lock yourself in the vehicle and wait for assistance to arrive. Don't accept a ride from a stranger -- ask them to call the police for you.
Protecting Your Vehicle From Theft
Always lock your vehicle and take your keys.
Don't leave personal property in plain view in your car.
Always park in well-lit, populated areas.
Don't leave your registration in the vehicle.
