Use Care if Stopped Along a Freeway or Interstate

There have been a recent rash of roadside robberies in the Riverside and San Bernardino County areas of Southern California. The victims were stopped for a roadside emergency when they were accosted by two armed thugs. There have been nine robberies so far. See full story.

You can’t always pick where you breakdown, so one should use care when stopped along a freeway or interstate, no matter where you are.

This is good advice, Craig, thanks for posting. I believe we should always be aware of our surroundings, especially in a strange place. It doesn't hurt to have mama armed and waiting inside the RV, either!

One of the ones that I have had that was what I think was an attempt to rob me was: I had stopped at a rest stop and had a young couple ask to use my facality(toylet) in my motorhome. I felt bad about refusing, but there was a toylet right up the road.

Yes, the sheriff of each county controls / issues permits. Some counties are very reasonable (liberal) and other counties are very rigid and do not issue permits, or very, very few.

I used to live in the Inland Empire. The more I read about the goings on there, the more I am glad Uncle Sam told me my services were required elsewhere. Meeting the woman that I eventually married there was one of the few pluses I can think of about my time there. Overpriced real estate, increasing crime, excessive taxation...need I say more? But to each his own, if you love southern California, good for you. For me, happiness was seeing the "Welcome to California" sign as a reflection in my rear view mirror as I was headed east on I-10.

It wasn't my intention to start this thread to bash California, merely a warning about a current problem. I admit SoCal has it's problems, but so do a lot of other places. Not all of us have the luxury of picking up stakes and moving away when we feel like it.

That's the non-political "liberal" we're talking about here - the more "politically liberal" a county is, the less likely you are to get a permit...

You are certainly correct about that. The more liberal - politically - the fewer permits they issue. The more conservative - politically - the more permits they issue. I believe Los Angeles County it's almost impossible to obtain a permit, and it's probably similar in the San Francisco area. In the Valley Counties you can obtain a permit if you do not have a criminal history.

SHUCKS, here in beautiful Oregon, you can get a permit for a Uzi, or other fully automatic machine gun - and buy a gun at a store or gun show, pay for it, and carry it home with you - NO waiting period - and CC permits just for the application and fee...

And yeah, folks here are so polite that they wave at you when they drive by, to assure you they aren't holding a gun...

At least we ordinary law-abiding citizens CAN be as well armed as the criminals - legally!
