  • A cell phone is your best tactical weapon

If Your Car Breaks Down…

  • Pull the car as far to the right as possible

  • Stay inside – with doors locked - and place a cell call to the appropriate emergency # or put your Send Police sign in the window

  • You can drive slowly on a flat tire if necessary
