1. Park vehicles in well-lit areas. Do not patronize parking lots where car doors must be left unlocked and keys surrendered; otherwise surrender only the ignition key. Allow items to be placed in or removed from the trunk only in your presence.
  2. When parked in a residential garage, turn the garage light on and lock the vehicle and garage door.
  3. Equip the gas tank with a locking gas cap. The hood-locking device must be controlled from inside the vehicle.
  4. Visually check the front and rear passenger compartments before entering the vehicle.
  5. Select a reliable service station for vehicle service.
  6. Keep doors locked while vehicle is in use.
  7. Be alert for vehicles that appear to be following you.
  8. When traveling by vehicle, plan ahead. Know the locations of police stations, fire departments and busy shopping centers.
  9. Use a different schedule and route of travel each day. If followed, drive to a police station, fire department, or busy shopping center. Sound the horn to attract attention.
  10. Do not stop to assist stranded motorist. Report the incident by phone instead.
