[ARCHIVED] Holiday Safety Tips from Nags Head Police Department
Driving and Travel
Be patient, we all know how stressful the season can be with busy roads.
Don’t Drink and Drive, if you have consumed alcohol seek alternate transportation. Driving while intoxicated is a sure way to ruin the season, your life or someone else’s.
When shopping, carry your bag or purse, don’t leave it unattended in a cart.
Use credit or debit cards for purchases. Avoid exposing or using large amounts of cash.
Place your purchases in a vehicle trunk, if no trunk, conceal your purchases especially if returning to the store.
When walking to or from your vehicle avoid becoming distracted by using your cell phone.
Park in a well-lit area, have your keys ready to open your vehicle when you return.
When shopping online use credit cards at trusted sites.
Have packages delivered to your business. If delivered to your home think of an alternate drop off location i.e., side of house, or storage room. Have a friend or neighbor pick up package. Schedule a pick up.
Safety at Home
Lock your doors and windows.
Let a neighbor know if you are leaving for an extended period.
Leave a light on inside and or use a timer.
Have your mail delivery suspended.
