Americans are angry about crime. We’ve given increasing attention and resources to security in our businesses, homes and our communities. And our police and public officials are taking action.
Criminals are shifting their attacks to our automobiles—situations where society and police security simply cannot patrol: carjackings, robberies of people in their vehicles and worse, personal attacks.
This booklet is unique. It discusses what you can do to protect yourself in your vehicle. For 21 years, The Scotti School of Defensive Driving has been teaching people to protect themselves from vehicle-related violence. Our clients are Heads of State, corporate executives and professional security personnel in government and the private sector. Many of the same techniques we teach them to use in high-risk situations can also be employed by the general public in the United States today.
We have learned that the violence in Bogota or Lima has the same structure as the vehicle-related situations we’re experiencing in the United States. In both cases, our objective is the same: teach you how to keep the perpetrators from entering your vehicle and prevent you from becoming a victim.
