Read These Life-Saving Tips for Safety Street Smarts

Safety Because of recent abductions during daylight hours, refresh yourself of what to do in a scary situation. Share these tips with everyone you know, print them, and re-read them often. It never hurts to be careful in this crazy world we live in. 


1. The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do! 

2. If a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, do not hand it to him. Toss it away from you. Chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or purse than you, and he will go for the wallet/purse. Run like mad in the other direction.


3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car, kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and wave like crazy. The driver won't see you, but everybody else will. This has saved lives.


4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping, eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their checkbook, or making a list, etc.). Don’t do this! The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side, put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go. As soon as you get into your car, lock the doors and leave. If someone is in the car with a gun to your head, do not drive off! Instead gun the engine and speed into anything, wrecking the car. Your Air Bag will save you, and if the person is in the back seat they will get the worst of it. As soon as the car crashes, bail out and run. It is better than having your body found in a remote location.
