How can you stay alert when you are distracted with a phone call, text, or even music? Put your phone and earbuds away and be aware of your surroundings. However, you might want to hold your phone and be ready to make an emergency call if needed.

Returning to Your Car

If there is a van parked next to your driver’s side, enter through your passenger side. Many predators will park next to your car and disguise theirs as a family vehicle with decals and “Baby on Board” stickers.

If your car has a flat tire, go back to where you came from and ask for assistance, even if you can fix it yourself.

If you leave a mall or someplace with security late at night, go directly to a security kiosk and ask them to assign someone to you to walk you to your car.
