If you think someone is following you while driving, there are a few things that you can do to ensure your safety. DO NOT panic. This will only make the situation worse. Here are some tips on what to do if you think someone is following you:

Tips for if Someone is Following You While Driving

  • Take steps to confirm you are actually being followed. Make sure the car behind you is always in sight, and check to see if the driver is trying to stay close to your car.
  • If you still think someone is following you, the best thing to do is call the police right away and give them your location. Do not try to confront the person yourself, as this could be dangerous. Do not hang up until the dispatcher tells you it is safe to do so.
  • Do not drive home if someone is following you. Drive to the nearest police or fire station and do not get out of the car. Call the station to alert someone inside that you are in your car outside the building.
  • If it is nighttime and there are few people around, drive to a well-lit area.

By following these steps, you can help ensure your safety if you think someone is following you while driving. Remember, DO NOT panic. This will only make the situation worse. If you take steps to confirm that you are actually being followed and then call 911, you can help ensure your safety and the safety of those around you.
