Self Defense Tips For The Ladies and Some Guys Too!!!!
Ever park your car in a dark secluded spot....when you parked it there it was sunny and bright, but now it is dark and sort of scary....OK here are some tips....be aware of any large trucks such as a van etc parked side by side to your vehicle it has been on record that attackers will sit in the truck awaiting a womean to return to her car...while she fumbles for her keys the assailant jumps out and drags her into the side door of his van over powering her, then drives off with either her or her belongings, here is how to avoid this, set off your remote control panic button on your alarm prior to coming to your car this will cause the horn to start blowing and the vehicles lights to start flashing drawing the attention to you and your car alerting any possible persons in the area to look over to see what all that is about... doing so should cause the alleged perpetrator to quickly leave the scene and foil his plans leaving you safe and sound.
Also if Mace is allowed to be sold and carruied in your State by all means carry a small spray cannister in your pocket, if someone does jump on you, spray them in the face and eyes, this will give you enough time to break free and run to safety.
You may even carry a whistle....sounds silly but a loud whistle blown into the ears of an assailant will startle them long enough to get you free of them and to run to safety.
Of course try to find a safety training course in your area on the proper training and carry for such devices and also if you can carry a concealed legal handgun on your person, take a course in hand gun safety as well and register for the proper licenses for either mace and/or a pistol permit.
Try to park in a well lit and busy traffic area, to help you remain safe, never walk down an alley alone without some sort of legal and licensed personal protection.
Pay attention to your surropundings and to who is in the area you are walking in, keep a good visual watch around and behind you at all times.
Once in your vehicle immediately lock the doors and keep the windows up, don't fall for the guy who knocks on the window and wants you to open the window so you can give him directions... instead take off if you safely can, if you feel like someone is following you drive to the nearest police station or beat cop and tell him of the situation.
Try to get trained in a form of self defense class such as Karate etc., it all helps.
Hope this helps you better prepare for the unsuspecting.
