      Reducing Your Risk of Becoming a Victim

      When you are on the road:

      • ALWAYS keep your doors locked and windows rolled up (if it’s hot and you don’t have air conditioning, roll them up at least part-way) no matter how short the distance you’re traveling or how safe the neighborhood.
      • Drive in the center lane to make it harder for potential carjackers to approach the car.
      • AVOID driving alone. Travel with someone whenever possible, especially at night.
      • When you are coming to a stop, leave enough room to maneuver around other cars, especially if you sense trouble and need to get away.
      • Always drive with the doors locked. If a thief can’t get in your vehicle, you stand a better chance of leaving with it.
      • DON’T stop to assist a stranger whose car has broken down. You can help instead by driving to the nearest phone (or using your cell phone) to call police for help.

      Getting Out of Your Vehicle

      • Park in well-lighted areas, near sidewalks or walkways. AVOID parking near dumpsters, large vans or trucks, woods, or anything else that limits your visibility.
      • NEVER leave valuables out in plain view, even if the car is locked. ALWAYS put them in the trunk or out of sight.
      • Try to park in a garage with an attendant. Leave only the ignition key, with no identification.
      • Even if you’re rushed, LOOK AROUND before you get out and STAY ALERT to the surroundings.
      • Always trust your instincts. If the situation doesn’t “feel right,” get away.
