Safety in Your Vehicle
The crime of "carjacking" - which is stealing a car by force - captures headlines across the country. Statistically speaking, however, your chances of being a victim of carjacking are very slim, and taking preventive measures can reduce that risk even more.
a.. If the carjacker threatens you with a gun or other weapon, give up your car. Don't argue. Your life is definitely worth more than a car.
b.. Get away from the area as quickly as possible. c.. Try to remember what the carjacker looked like-sex, race, age, hair and eye color, special features, clothes.
d.. Report the crime immediately to the police.
