Uber and Lyft Safety???

Uber and Lyft have really taken off in popularity recently, especially in big cities such as L.A, New York City and Chicago. Have you ever felt uneasy getting in a ride with an ‘Uberly’ complete stranger? As a passenger of an Uber or Lyft ride, you should know there are products available to purchase that may help you feel a little more secure.

Pepper Sprays are great and pack a huge punch! There are many different varieties in different shapes, sizes and potency. Each state and or city may have there own regulations in regards to what is allowed to be carried, so we recommend checking your local regulations before purchasing any pepper sprays. In general, all states allow Pepper Spray but some limit the maximum potency to 10%. Others require that you purchase the spray in the state you reside.

The OC (oleoresin capsicum) level represents the potency. The highest OC pepper spray we carry is 18%. We would recommend you carry the max for your safety if your state allows. Along with pepper spray it may be helpful to carry a personal alarm. The alarms sounds a loud sound that scares the attacker and notifies persons nearby. With these two items, you will have two methods of protection covered. Some personal alarms have a decibel as high as 130!!

Safety isn’t limited to just passengers. Drivers should also cover all aspects for safety as well as passengers. For drivers it is also a good idea to have a pepper spray on board. We recommend you have video surveillance as well to prevent any “he said she said” scenarios that may occur. There are a wide variety of dash/vehicle cameras available.

A flashing light on a camera screams “I am a dummy camera” and many thieves may know that. Simply don’t use the feature. Any bad guy with half a brain can figure out that the flashing light is a sure sign of a dummy camera. Continue reading
