Driving into a shopping mall parking lot, there are usually eyes already on customers by those with less than good intentions....they are sitting outside or in their cars just watching folks.
By simply getting out of your car and doing a quick but confident scan of the area, may make the diff. between being a sheep/victim and being left alone by the would-be perp.
It immediately shows the bad guys you are not like many of the people out there, and are mindful of your surroundings.
Thus the perp looks for easier pickings. My humble opinion.
