Tips for the Motorist

  • Keep at least a half-tank of gas in your automobile at all times.
  • In traffic, leave space in front of your car so you can maneuver away if you are threatened.
  • If your car breaks down, turn your emergency flashers on, raise the hood and trunk, and sit inside your locked vehicle until help arrives. You may also tie a white flag to your antenna or purchase a “Please Send Help” sign from most retail stores.
  • Park in a well-lit area, as close to the door as possible.
  • If you are threatened, hold down the horn and drive away.
  • If you think you are being followed by another car, drive to a populated area. If the car continues to follow, drive to the nearest place where you can get help.
  • If someone follows you into your driveway, stay in your car with the doors locked until you can identify the driver.
