Never thought of this one but it is a good advise for all ladies, even men.
Be aware of new car-jacking scheme.   BE AWARE and BE SAFE
You walk across the parking lot, unlock your car and get inside.
Then you lock all your doors, start the engine and shift into
You look into the rear-view window to back out of your parking space
and you notice a piece of paper, some sort of advertisement stuck to
your rear window.
So, you shift into PARK,  unlock your doors and jump out of your
vehicle to remove that paper (or whatever it is) that is obstructing
your view...
when you reach the back of your car, that is when the car-jackers
jump out of nowhere .. jump into your car and take off --
your engine was running, your purse is in the car, and they
practically mow you down as they speed off in your car.
Just drive away and remove the paper that is stuck to your window
later and be thankful that your read this email and that you forwarded it
to your friends.

won't happen to me any crap paper that is placed on my vehicle will blow off as I go out of the parking lot. I never even read the garbage-let the business that allows the crap put on it pay to pick it up. Nothing placed on my vehicle in a parking lot is of any consequence.

Thanks for posting that bill....too many folks are complacent with the "it can't happen to me" attitude.These are the one's who usually get taken out there in the real world.

It's a shame tho.... and don't say much about our civil evolution when ya gotta take precautions like this to protect yer own self/property.
