Avoid Being Followed Home

Tips for Staying Safe While Traveling Home

  • Frequently check your rear-view mirror to see if you are being followed. If you are being followed, do not drive home. Instead drive to the nearest police station, fire station, or other place of safety
  • If you believe you are being followed but are unsure, make three consecutive left hand or right hand turns. If you are still being followed, do not drive home
  • Remember, it is important to know where you are so police officers can respond if needed. Know your direction of travel
  • If you have a cellular phone, call 9-1-1. Try to get a good description of the vehicle that is following you including the vehicle's make, color, and license plate number if possible
  • Do not try to be a hero. Don't take any action that would jeopardize your own safety
