Sound the Alarm "If you're staying at a single-story motel with outside doors and you're concerned about security, keep your car keys on the nightstand and park near your room. If it appears that someone is trying to get into your room, all you have to do is press the panic button on the car key and the car's honking should chase away the intruder." —Dick Boardman, Fairport, N.Y.
