If you do happen to get stuck in the middle of a protest, stay calm and don’t panic. The following steps may help you to avoid danger:


1. Check for escape routes. Try to get out of the protest area quickly and safely.

2. Stay in your car, but unbuckle your seatbelt. As long as your vehicle is safe, stay inside it, but be ready to exit quickly if need be.

3. Stay calm and patient. Don’t get angry with protestors and focus on the road ahead of you, showing them that you mean no harm and only want to pass through

4. Always remember that If you have to leave your vehicle and belongings for safety, do so. Your life and safety are more important than any possessions.
