Personal Defence : 7 Car related Security Tips for you this Weekend


Getting secured everywhere anywhere is not just the function of the security agencies alone, but the duty of every individual. Most times before the eventual coming of security personnel at a crime scene, havoc and serious mess would have been done, leaving such individual in a state of great suffering.


But then, here are 9 security tips for your personal defence when you are alone simple practical


  1. Keep your Car locked:

Even when you are going for a 2-minute walk or shopping from your parked car, it is essential you get your car locked. Don’t get too lazy about this as most car owners often will neglect this all in the name not going far.


  1. Tip from Taekwondo: Do you know the elbow is the hardest and the closest part of the human body after the knuckle for personal defence? Yes with your elbow, you can pull some defence stunt on your attacker and leave a crime scene unhurt.


  1. Opening a car boot when locked in it

In the case of being kidnapped by an abductor, or what if you get thrown into the trunk of a car, kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like ‘crazy’. The driver can hardly see you doing this, but then you will be seen by passersby and eventually get saved.



  1. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping, eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing makeup, writing their chequebook, or making a list, etc.)

Never do this!) The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side, put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go. As soon as you get into your car, Lock The Doors And Leave. With this, you can be sure of 98 or even 95 percent security.


  1. Get a security alarm car. It helps to alert you when someone is tampering with your car. With that, you can know what is happening wherever you are.


  1. A few tips when you need to get into your car after parking for a long time.


a.) Beware, look around you, look into your car, at the passenger side floor

and in the back seat.


b.)  When you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door.

Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women

are attempting to get into their cars.


c.) Look at the car parked on the driver’s side of your vehicle, and the passenger side. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a guard/policeman to walk you back out. That is much better than being paranoia.


  1. Water scam

If you wake up in the midnight to hear all your taps outside running, don’t go out to check it or go all alone. These people turn on all your external taps full blast so as to get your attention and then attack.


There are several tricks attackers use these days to get their victim, but it is also essential you have some ‘first aid’ security tips handy with you mostly when you are all alone. It actually helps to keep you intact before impending attack.
