The following advice comes from an article on Physical Safety found at www.solosingles.com:
Always be aware of your surroundings. Look around you, look into your car, check the passenger side floor and the back seat. Check under the car as you approach it to be sure no one is under it. If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door. Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars. Observe the car parked on the driver's side of your vehicle and the passenger side. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a guard or policeman to walk back out with you.
