Truck Driver Self Defense Safety Kit-product Review

Truckers lead a difficult life. It is sometimes a dangerous one as well. They are mostly independent businessmen and women travelling long distances under heavy time and economic restraints. The truck stop has for decades provided a place to rest, to sleep, to eat, to catch up and socialize, to make contacts and just be in contact with others. A 2020 survey of over 447 truckers found that more than 21 percent said they were a victim of crime which 42% of those victims were of violent crimes including assault, rape, and robbery. They continue to drive past the point of feeling “safe and alert” because they cannot find a place to stop and sleep at night. The survey also found that drivers often resort to parking in unsafe areas, such as along the shoulders of highways and on highway on-ramps, if they can’t find a place at a rest area. Tragically there have been at least two reported deaths in 2020 due to this. However there are some tools one can use towards crime prevention and better to protect themselves with. These products range from personal defense, property protection, products to help towards making situations a little easier. It’s always good to keep a flashlight on hand and the 1200 Lumen LED flashlight is a perfect choice. It has an innovative lens that extends to narrow the blaze of light over 1,500 feet. It also includes a SOS signaling setting. Another option is the very handy 8-N-1 Car Charger Power Bank Auto Safety Tool. It’s equipped with a 120 lumen flashlight and a red flashing light for signaling. You can use the built-in magnet to mount to your car and use the adjustable neck to aim the light in the needed position. You can plug this tool into your cigarette lighter. Once it’s charged and if you need to use it as a power bank, the USB port is easy to locate due to the glow-in-the-dark band. It can be a real life saver too thanks to the seat belt cutter and glass breaking hammer. Worried about the safety of your valuables when you leave your truck? You can easily hide certain items in diversion safes. The burglar will never have a clue what’s right under their nose. The diversions safes come in a large variety that won’t make them seem out of place in a truck such as the Liquid Wrench, Lubricant, Engine and Brake Cleaners and plenty of drink cans and bottles that you can choose from. The Nap Alarm is one of the simplest yet effective tools to detect and defeat falling asleep at the wheel. Hook it over your ear and if your hear nods as in falling asleep a loud alarm sounds. If the trucking company doesn’t offer one already, a trucker can install the 1080p HD Dash Cam with a Built In DVR. It records video at 1080p 30 frames per second with its 170° ultra-wide angle lens. It also kicks in when motion is detected. It has a rechargeable battery that can be recharged via the cigarette lighter and only takes 3 hours to fully charge. Once you need to review the footage, you can hook it up this up to a HDMI TV using the mini HDMI out port. Installation is very easy since it’s just a suction cup. There are several pepper sprays a trucker can use. One good option is the Pepper Shot Tri Pack. It comes with one 2oz can of pepper spray for home use and two ½ oz cans – one with a visor clip to keep in your vehicle and the other has a keychain you can use to connect with your truck keys. Each cannister packs 2,000,000 Scoville Heat Units and the effects can last up to 45 minutes. Effects include: – coughing and choking – temporary blindness – pain and irritation The 2 oz sprays can reach up to 12 feet while the ½ oz sprays can reach up to 8 feed. Pepper Spray also doesn’t cause any permanent damage. There are several model of stun guns you could choose from as well. The Bouncer is a wonderful choice if you want a stun gun and striking weapon all wrapped into one. It unleashes 100 million volts and its 22 inch aircraft aluminum reach makes it a force to be recon with. It also includes a 280 lumen flashlight and removable glass breaker. Stun guns and pepper sprays are not legal in some states. Check with your local police department first before you get this safety kit.
