Full cooperation is recommended when stopped by police.

Many attacks have occurred in the …. area, and others have taken place on rural roads and at interstate highway rest areas. Some rest areas have dusk-to-dawn security on site (which is indicated on the highway sign). Proceed cautiously when exiting a freeway (including …) into large urban centres, especially after dusk. Theft has increased, particularly from trunks of parked cars in the … area, … and at airports. Be alert, as criminals use a variety of techniques to steal personal belongings.
