4. Parking Lots Call for Extra Precautions
It is a well-known fact that parking lots, especially those in the basements of buildings, are a very common site of crime and that's why some extra caution needs to be observed while you are moving in or out of these sites. Whenever you are in a parking area, never linger at one place, always keep moving towards your car while keeping a careful eye on your surroundings for any suspicious signals. Never park next to commercial vehicles like vans and delivery trucks as they can be easily used to abduct you while you are getting into your car. On noticing anything that feels out of place, do not proceed, walk back and bring the parking attendant or the guard to escort you to your car. And most importantly, never go for a deserted or unattended to parking lot. Always park in an area that is well-lit, properly attended to and not completely devoid of people.
