    Vehicles and Defensive Tactics

    We as Americans spend a lot of time in our vehicles. So it stands to reason that we should consider the defense of ourselves in and around vehicles.

    What are some defensive "tips" that you could offer for when driving or when operating around a vehicle?

    Here are a few to get things started:

    • Keep your doors locked.
    • Driving out of a bad situation is often the best tactic.
    • Take off your seatbelt when you're not actively driving.

    A couple spring to mind:

    --Watch where you park your vehicle.
    --Be courteous behind the wheel.

    leave yourself an "out" while driving. no matter where you are, plan to be able to leave in a hurry as much as possible.

    Well he's almost an INGO member now.

    But he says some good things, like always keeping space in front of your car when stuck in traffic.
    I always do that and I actually learned it in driving school here.My instructor said you should always be able to see the wheels of the car in from of you touching the ground.That means you have enough room to change line without touching the car.
    I do that especially when stopped at a red line with a car in front of me, this way I can drive on the sidewalk and get away if I have to.

    Anyone have any parking tips? Always back in? Stay away from bigger vehicles? Park under light poles?

    Someone once suggested that when you pull up behind someone at a traffic light, never pull up so close that you can't see where their tires meet the pavement. That way you leave yourself enough room to move around them if necessary.

    I don't know exactly where I heard it first but it has stuck with me.

    Big on here! Learned this lesson the hard way multiple time while living in Chicago. Being in the inside lane can very quickly lead you to being stuck.

    Ride in the outside lane wherever possible, keep enough room between you and the car in front of you that you can easily turn onto the shoulder or next lane. AKA don't tailgate.

    Others:

    • Keep your gas tank at least half full
    • Keep up to date on standard maintenance, especially tires, brakes and fluid levels
    • back into parking spaces or pull through so you can drive straight out



    I know a few more but I'm tired.
