Men, carry an extra money clip with a $5 on the outside and a couple of ones underneath. If approached by a mugger, throw it at them and when they bend to pick it up--run!
 

  

If someone demands your keys, take a useless set and throw as far as you can. When car-jacker is looking for them, get in your car and get away.
 

  

Women should glue mirrors on their trunk lid allowing them to see if anyone is approaching from the sides while you are loading the trunk.
 

  

Children should never be forced by an adult to approach someone they don't want to. This teaches them it's okay to say "No" to strangers.
