From the commute to and from work to the outings on the weekends and vacations use these tips to stay safe in your car.
- Don’t challenge aggressive drivers. Let them go ahead of you to put yourself out of danger
- When getting out of your car, close the windows, lock the doors, and turn on the alarm, if you have one
- Take anything important with you or put it in the trunk before you get to your destination. Don’t leave anything that looks valuable, like a gym bag, camera bag, or laptop computer out in the open
- Park in a well-lit area
