I don’t know about you, but I am kind of obsessed with safety. I always want to make sure that I am as safe as possible whether I’m lazing around at home or out and about. After all, you never know when something scary might happen. For that reason, it’s always best to be prepared! Here are 13 hacks that could actually save your life one day…. No, seriously!
1. Pay attention to your instincts
When something just feels wrong, that’s your body’s way of telling you that danger is near. All too often, people fail to pay attention to their instincts, but they are the best indication of how safe you really are.
2. When a stranger gets into your car…
… and tells you to drive them somewhere, there is one thing you can do. Drive your car into a post so that it won’t go anymore. When you do so, you have drawn attention to the situation and the person will want to get away as fast as they can.
3. If someone attacks you, hit them in the groin
When you’re being attacked, it can often be tricky to figure out what to do next. Go straight for their groin. Doing so will stop them right away. That will give you a little time to make your getaway and tell someone about the situation.
4. If your cab driver is acting weird, make a call
We would all like to think that we are always safe in cabs, but that is not always the case. If the driver is acting suspiciously, make a call to someone. Tell them where you are and what type of cab you’re in. Make sure that the driver hears you so that he knows people are aware of your whereabouts.
