What To Do If Someone Is Following You In A Car by Ken Jorgustin for Modern Survival Blog
It’s an alarming and chilling feeling that someone might be following you.
There are precautions you should take to make sure that you stay safe.
Here’s what you should do if you think that someone is following you in a car:
ARE YOU BEING FOLLOWED?
It doesn’t take much effort to make sure that you’re not being followed.
Consider any of the following suggestions:
1. Since most criminals are amateurs, simply drive around the block if you think you’re ever being followed.
2. Make three right turns. If they’re still behind you after that, then yes, you’re being followed.
3. Don’t panic and don’t drive reckless.
4. Calm yourself so that you can think clearly. Get your mind on looking around you to see if there is some place safe you can go.
5. Never stop and get out of your car when someone is following you.
6. Never go straight home. You do not want the ‘nut job’ to know where you live.
7. Be sure that all of your doors are locked. Someone can gain access to a car that’s stopped at a red light or stop sign in a few seconds.
8. Be sure that your windows are rolled up.
9. Stay on well traveled roads, if at all possible. People looking to hurt people in their cars are looking for people who are the most vulnerable.
10. Never stop to let a car that’s following you pass. Pull over to another lane to let someone pass.
11. If you are convinced you’re being followed, dial 911. They will direct you to the nearest police station.
12. Drive to a police station. The guy behind you is not likely to stop there. If he does, don’t get out of your car until there are policemen outside your door to escort you.
