    I take steps to keep a good distance between me and any monetary armored car.

    Yah. 'Like chum in the water. I went to the bank yesterday right as the truck pulled up - I kept right on cruising to Lowe's and then went by the bank again on my way home.

    I'll tell you this is just SAD, those armored car guys only get aobut $10 an hour, way to little pay for putting your life on the line
    for other peoples money. The amored car company is insured so any loss is taken care of, but this guards family will have to live
    without him/her for the rest of their lives. Just a darn same.

    I have never gone so far as to go the other way when an Armored Car is making a stop. But, I have checked the area for suspicious people or vehicles when entering or exiting a business with an Armored Car at the entrance. Spidey Senses go on full alert in SA, and who knows maybe I could give out a warning as I make a dive for cover, before something went ballistic.

    So true.

    Anytime I see one stopped I make a point of staying in the area until I see the truck guard back in and the driver leaving the financial institution.

    There were a rash of armored car hits, what, last year? Multiple fatalities. Time to give those guys SMGs and some new tactics.

    Cool

    Back in the mid 70's there was a rash of armored car robberies and shootings in South Florida. For a time they would put a total of three guards on the truck. When they made a stop the first guard out had a pump shotgun port arms, the second guard out has his revolver in hand and carrying the bankbag in his off hand. Might not be a bad idea to start this up again. Oh I forgot the reason they stopped this proceedure was it scared the public and made them feel the banks were unsafe places to be and they felt that it was not beneficial to good bank relations.

    I too, go out of my way to avoid being near such vehicles. When I see one, I am constantly looking everywhere for the possibilities.

    Unhappy UpdateD INFO.......

    According to the witness the second guard could have shot one of the suspects but didnot and afterwards he appeared visibly shaken and distraught.

    It is so important to decide if you can take a life if lawfully needed prior to having to make that decision on the street. There are those in the law-enforcement community who have done the same thing as the Brinks guard and been unable to take the shot.

    I won't say I go out of my way to avoid walking past one or entering a bank or business when one is pulled up in front, but I do think about it and scan the area a few more times. It may not happen often, but it happens to those guys often enough.
