Security, as they say, begins and ends with you. Law enforcement agencies are in place, but they may not help much if you don’t take personal safety seriously. A few simple tips can make a big difference in the protection of yourself and your family. Try the following four easy tips.
Become a harder target
Don’t turn yourself or family members into sitting ducks for thugs. Make yourself a difficult target for criminals, and you will be safe. Don’t move towards your car or anywhere else with your eyes fixed firmly on your phone. Take time to study your environment to determine if it is safe to take a glance at your mobile device.
Lock car door as soon as you enter
Be sure to lock your car doors as soon as you or your family are safely inside. Don’t just sit and let your mind wander to other things because thugs can bet your car door isn’t locked yet and pounce. Don’t enter your car if you don’t plan to drive away at once, especially when you are in a new place.
Strange objects on your car? Don’t stop!
Is there something sticking on your car that you do not know of? Drive off without looking back – unless it is a bomb! Get to a safe place before stopping your vehicle to inspect the strange object. By this time, you will be miles away from your potential enemies.
Take a look at your hairstyle
As for the ladies, try to wear a hairstyle that is less easy to grab. Those long braids, ponytails, or buns may be fashionable but are also easy for outlaws to hold as you make your escape. You will be safer by keeping the hair as close to your skull as possible.
