A shocking story from April 2019 revealed how a young female student ordered an Uber ride in the early hours, after spending the night with her friends. After waiting for the ride, the young student approached and entered what she thought was her Uber taxi, as reported by the Police. Surveillance footage captured her getting into the black Chevrolet Impala, and she was never seen alive again. In fact, her murdered body was found 70 miles away to the great sadness of her family and friends.
This is a common event in many countries today, which is why Staff Defence has developed a range of Travel and Personal Safety Training Courses, each designed to help to keep you safe. We invite you to visit our website for more information on our Training Courses.
Firstly, we would like you to consider the following points:-
Taking a Taxi:
At Staff Defence, we can provide you with some ideas to start with in keeping yourself safe in a taxi. We have many more suggestions, all encompassed in our Travel & Personal Safety Training Courses. These are equally as important when one travels overseas as when one travels around the UK, as follows:-
We all have the right to travel in safety, but we all know the world is not a safe place. Trouble isn’t present every day; we know that – but are you prepared to make sure it will never catch up with you?
Are you prepared to deal with these situations, should it happen to you?
Remember that most reputable taxi companies now have mobile apps that help communicate with you to inform you that the taxi arriving is the taxi you have ordered – sign up to them and use them.
Meanwhile, Staff Defence can help prepare you for your trips with our tiered levels of training, depending on where your travels may take you.
