If you read March's edition of Cleo magazine, there's an article named Survival Cheat Sheet. It teached us what to do in the case of emergencies. There was one which caught my attention right away which is 'Tailed by a Stranger'. This reminds me of the stalker I met 2 years ago which I'd also blogged here.
However, this point focuses on walking home alone while in my case, I was being stalked by a motor cyclist while I was driving. But I guess the 'concept' is almost the same =_=
Here's the tips shared by Cleo on what to do if you're tailed by a stranger:
1. Ascertain if you're being followed or just being paranoid. Cross the road to check but even if they do not follow, exercise caution.
2. Walk briskly like you know where you're going.
3. Try not to look over with the corner of your eyes as this may make you look intimidated. If you must look, turn your entire head around, otherwise use car doors or shop-window reflections.
4. Dart into a shop, public place or well-lit area near a road with cars passing . If it doesnt work, tell the shop's manager or call the police.
If being followed while driving, the safest and quickest way is to drive to the nearest police station.
Will appreciate if you have any other suggestions or tips!
Be safe everybody!
