Annotation: AS THE THIRD IN A FOUR-PART SERIES OF CRIME PREVENTION FILMS FOR SENIOR CITIZENS, THIS FILM FOCUSES ON WAYS IN WHICH SENIOR CITIZENS CAN MAKE TRANSIT BY CAR AND BUS A SAFER EXPERIENCE.
Abstract: SENIOR CITIZENS CAN ENHANCE THEIR SAFETY ON BUSES BY TAKING A SEAT NEAR THE DRIVER AND BY LEAVING THE BUS IF THE RIDERS BECOME NOISY OR APPEAR THREATENING. THEY SHOULD, HOWEVER, WHEN LEAVING A BUS, TRY TO AVOID UNKNOWN AREAS. SENIOR CITIZENS WHO DRIVE ARE CAUTIONED TO LOCK THEIR TRUNKS TO PREVENT ROBBERY. IF THEIR CAR IS DISABLED, THEY SHOULD LOCK THE CAR DOORS AND STAY WITH THE VEHICLE UNTIL HELP ARRIVES FROM THE HIGHWAY PATROL OR OTHER OFFICIAL SOURCE. IN ADDITION, THEY SHOULD NOTIFY THE HIGHWAY PATROL WHEN A CAR IS DISABLED INSTEAD OF STOPPING TO HELP. THE FILM ALSO WARNS ITS AUDIENCE NOT TO PICK UP HITCHHIKERS, TO ALWAYS CHECK THE CAR BEFORE ENTERING, AND TO KEEP VALUABLES OUT OF SIGHT. BUS DRIVERS AND POLICE ARE PRESENTED AS IMPORTANT SOURCES OF INFORMATION AND ASSISTANCE. FOR OTHER FILMS IN THE SERIES, SEE NCJ 67431-33 AND NCJ 67435. (AOP)
