1. Prevent Auto Theft
To a thief there is nothing more welcomed than a  car .  It's a self-propelled,fully equipped speedy machine ready  for a fast get-away.
The owner or an authorized driver of a car should not leave the vehicle unattended without locking the ignition or removing the key. A subsanctional number of automobiles are stolen because drivers fail to remove the ignition key.
How to give the thief a hard time !

  • Park in a well lit area.
  • Roll-up the windows & lock all doors.
  • Activate any theft deterrent device that you may have.
  • Put packages or valuables out of sight.
  • Do not leave behind license, registration documents, car title papers etc. in car. If left behind, they become an added incentive for  thieves to sell your car.
  • If you have a  garage, please use it. Lock both car as well as your garage.

2. Purse Snatch

  • Do not carry a bag that makes you a target. A big  bag that dangles from the shoulder can be easily yanked off from behind.
  • If you, unfortunately so, become a victim of a purse snatch, do not fight to hold onto your bag. Especially when the theif is armed.
  • Do not carry your bag in such a manner that you can't let-go off instantly . Many women have been injured because their own bags have acted as hand-cuffs while a purse snatcher yanked it away.
  • Do be aware of your surroundings and carry your bag close to your body, preferably tucked under  your elbow.
  • Do minimize the amount of money and credit cards that you carry with you on daily basis . Divide your money between pockets and bags.

3. While you are Driving :

  • Keep windows rolled up except for a small ventilation space and keep your doors locked.
  • If someone attempts to force you off the road, don't panic. Blow your horn constantly to attract attention.If you are forced over, then as soon as you stop the car put it in reverse and back  away while continuously blowing the horn and moving away as much as possible.
  • If you suspect that someone is following you, attempt a few turns/detours down busy streets if possible.
  • Try to park your car in a well lit area. This is not only good from the standpoint of discouraging  a personal attack on you but also for reducing the chance of auto-theft.
  • Before getting into your car, please peep inside to make sure that nobody is hiding in the back seat.
