Safety Tips For Women Who Drive at Night
When driving, keep your doors locked and keep the windows either closed or mostly closed so a potential attacker could not reach in and get to you or to the door's unlock button. When stopped atintersections, turn the radio down or off so you can hear potential warning noises such as other motorists calling out warnings to you, someone trying to enter through your back doors, or someonetrying to climb on your car.When you leave the car, set the alarm if you have a security system or use an anti-theft device. Asecurity system sticker is also a good deterrent for potential vandals, but don't rely on the sticker alone;always have some kind of security system for your car.When choosing a parking space, look for a well-lit area near the building's entrance. You want to limityour exposure to potential attacks by spending the least amount of time possible in the parking garage.Don't park next to large vehicles, windowless vans, vehicles with tinted windows, or trucks with caps(camper-like shells which cover and enclose the truck bed). You cannot see who may be lurking insidethese vehicles, waiting to attack you. You also cannot be seen by people outside the vehicle should you be abducted and thrown inside. Never leave your motor running, a thief could easily steal your car before you are even a few feet away. Never leave your car unlocked, thieves rob unlocked vehicles and can easily steal them. And never ever leave children unattended in the car; not only can they be abducted, but they could also be seriouslyinjured, both physically and emotionally, in a startling variety of ways.Don't leave valuables inside the car where thieves can see them. Lock your purchases and valuables inthe trunk.Keep an emergency kit inside your car: include flares, an air horn, mace or pepper spray, a can of flattire repair spray (i.e. Fix-a-Flat) and, if you have one, a two-way radio so you can call for help even if your cell phone battery is dead. Put a flashlight in your trunk. If an attacker locks you in your trunk, usethe flashlight to see the inside of your taillights. Kick these out and then scream and stick your handthrough the hole to attract attention.When driving at night, let someone know when you are leaving, what time you expect to arrive at your destination (or checkpoints for longer journeys) and check in with your trusted person every hour.Agree that at check-ins you will give your exact location and if you miss a check-in, your trusted person will notify the police of your last whereabouts and intended destination. make sure your trusted person has written identification details such as the make, models and year of your car, your license plate number, and a physical description of you including what clothing you have on.Driving at night can be a risky activity, but with some planning and careful vigilance, you can increaseyour chances of avoiding being the victim of a crime.Sarah V. Morris is especially concerned with personal safety. She recently discovered that she canmonitor her property from anywhere; want to learn how?
