In Your Car
Every Car Needs a Personal Self Defense System . . .
You're always at risk when you drive your car.
Have you ever had a flat tire or run out of gas? Have you ever seen someone broken down at the side of the road but didn't stop to help because you didn't feel safe doing so? Sometimes women who keep pepper spray in their purse find themselves temporarily switching to another purse to match their shoes, transfering just their pocketbook or wallet to the other purse, forgetting their pepper spray. Carrying pepper spray in your car is the answer.
How common are carjackings crimes?
Carjacking, a type of robbery, is theft or attempted theft of a motor vehicle by force or threat of force. Between 1997 and 2002, carjackings accounted for 3% of the 2.3 million vehicle thefts per year that occurred nationwide. An average of 51,000 completed and attempted carjackings took place each year in the United States between 1997 and 2002.
Carjackings can be violent. Drivers have been beaten and even murdered while being pulled out of their car. Below are some pepper spray products that could protect your personal safety during a car theft or car jacking.
