Michigan Personal Protection Tips: Remember Where You Parked Your Vehicle

Michigan Personal Protection Tips: Remember Where You Parked Your Vehicle

Parking lots are dangerous places to be. As such, you need to minimize the amount of time that you spend in them. One strategy to accomplish that is to remember where you parked your vehicle. If you know exactly where you are going, it won't take you long to get there. 

When exiting your vehicle, look around for landmarks, aisle numbers on signs, names of streets, and features of the venue you are visiting to give you memory "joggers" to help you find your car. If necessary, quickly write this info on a slip of paper and put it your pocket or take a quick picture your cell phone camera. A person looking for a lost car sticks out like a sore thumb. Predators cruising the lot for victims will have no difficulty seeing him.

A couple of months ago, I helped a friend find her car at a benefit we had both attended. Her vehicle, as it turned out, was several blocks away and she had absolutely no clue where she had parked her car. Had she not had me driving her around downtown, she would have been at an elevated risk of being attacked because she would have been walking haphazardly, without a sense of purpose, and not paying attention to her surroundings.
