Driving Tips: Personal Safety
You safety can be in question when you least expect it. Keep these
important points in mind:
Never roll down your window to talk to a stranger. If required,
roll the window down only enough to be heard.
- Do not stop to aid disabled motorists. Telephone for help instead.
If you are in need of help, never go with a stranger who offers
help. Instead, ask them to call for help for you.
- If your vehicle becomes disabled, attach a white cloth to the
door handle or antenna. Lock the doors and stay in the vehicle.
If someone stops to help, don't open your door or window. Ask
the person to please telephone for help.
- It's a good idea to carry a cell phone in your car, making
it possible for you to call for help for yourself or someone else.
- If you believe you're being followed, drive immediately to the
nearest police station, or a well lit and well populated service
area. You could stay in your vehicle and sound the horn or go
into a safe location and call the police.
- When stopped at an intersection leave enough space so that you
can see the tires of the car in front of you. That will allow
you to pull around that vehicle and not be blocked in.
