Outzones and How to Survive Them.

Outzones are the areas between towns and cities where the law doesn't reach. In these areas, mutant tribal rule has taken hold and the leaders of these tribes are known as local Warlords. Many of these tribes practice cannibalism as a way of survival in the wild. Though content to make war on one another, they do occasionally attack vehicles on roadways if they get the opportunity.

The government has put out a list of precautionary steps a motorist should take before attempting to cross though the outzones. By it best calculations, the government also notes that taking all of these steps, motorists have an up to 80% chance of making it to the next town alive.
1. Never cross the outzone alone. Go in large groups.
2. Never cross the outzone at night.
3. Make sure your car is in good mechanical shape. If you break down in the outzone you won't survive for very long.
4. Make sure you have a full fuel tank. Take extra fuel if your going a long way. Take food and clothing as well just in case.
5. Make sure the armor on your car is in good repair, and all weapons are fully loaded and in proper working order.
6. If you do get attacked in the outzone, do not hesitate to return fire.
