A truck driver has been shot at recently. Fortunately, the man was able to duck and evade the danger of the bullets. Safe! They broke through the windows, but in any case, the man made his escape without even a scratch. He was able to keep the truck on the road. What a benefit for him! Unfortunately this is more of a common instance than one would be led to believe. In whichever case you may find yourself, use these following tactics to keep yourself safe on the long and winding road.
Always Be Aware of The Surroundings You’re Nearby
Scan the area around you. Be safe. Even a dark, snowy night could be as uneasy as a scorching, blinding day. If you can look around, then you can probably spot a perpertraitor before he even thinks about perpertraiting.
Rest Areas Are Dangerous At Night
Some rest areas are dodgy during the nighttime. They don’t have doors from the outside to the restroom. Maybe even a wall, but nothing more. Especially for women, the stakes are high when stuck inside an all-too-creepy-and-not-too-safe rest area.
Trailer Walking Is A No-No
Who knows who’s hiding under the trailers or upon the catwalks? There’s a likelihood that some slithery soul is waiting to ambush you from out of nowhere. Don’t take your chances in the dark. Turn on your truck lights. That might scare someone who was trying to steal your gas.
There are other weapons, besides guns
Think of a flashlight, a hammer, some wasp spray. Maybe even a tire thumper! Any blunt object that can cause someone to inch back in any sort of retreat should be a considerable means of defense. You have to stay safe.
Beyond all else, have an escape plan. There are phones for a reason, as well as velcro and bed sheets that can give you proper cover enough to stop the baddies from taking advantage of the window shopping.
