/// Parking Lot Survival Guide
Assailants and criminals engage activity where their targets and victims are known to be and will be. Parking lots are such places as it’s relatively confined with predictable foot and vehicular movement.
That makes attacks also somewhat foreseeable and therefore preventable or at least let’s you counter with a defensive or an evasive maneuver.
1) Park as close as possible to your entry / exit point. You want to minimize the amount of time and space you are vulnerable. The closer you are to the main entrance / building, the higher the security.
10) If you have to use your vehicle to run over an assailant, try to use the corners of your car, not directly under and center of your car. Use the wheels as aiming points, otherwise your vehicle may be immobilized with a body caught in the transmission.
Just because you don’t drive a nice car or aren’t an attractive woman doesn’t mean you’re immune from parking lot threats. It’s not always about theft or deviancy, it could be personal or professional.
