If you are traveling by vehicle

  • qKeep your vehicle in good condition.
  • Be aware of your surroundings, especially when you venture into an unfamiliar area off the beaten tourist track.
  • Ask the hotel personnel for directions to your destination and have a local and highway map in the vehicle with you.  If you have a GPS, use it but be sure to remove it form your windshield or dashboard whenever you leave your car unattended.
  • Make sure you have enough gas to get where you’re going.
  • While driving keep all doors locked and wear your safey belts... IT'S THE LAW IN FLORIDA. 
  • If you cannot take your valuables inside with you whenever you stop, store them in your vehicle’s trunk or out of view of passersby before you reach your destination.
  • If someone suspicious approaches your vehicle while you are stopped in traffic or in a parking lot, blow your vehicle’s horn constantly.
  • Park in a well-lighted area with lots of pedestrian traffic when arriving and check the inside of your vehicle when you return.
  • ALWAYS lock your vehicle doors even if you plan to return immediately.
  • When you return to your vehicle, have door key in your hand.
