• Always be aware of at least two exits

  • Trust your instincts - and act on them

  • Run/ jog / walk against the traffic, never with the traffic

Always exit a store with a cart/shipping buggy & use it to:

  • Keep your space from others

  • As a defensive tool

  • Allows you to keep your hands free from shopping bags

Keep car keys on night table at bedtime. Activate car alarm if anything suspicious outside. Grab for quicker get-a-way if necessary.

  • Creating distance = Avoiding a conflict

  • Always park at end of a row in parking lots (one side of vehicle (and you) will remain more visible.)

  • Keep car keys in pocket, never in purse. Keep them easily accessible.
