If your vehicle is hit by flying debris while you are driving, pull over and park. Stay in the car with the seat belt on. Put your head below the windows; cover your head with your hands and anything else you can. If you can safely get lower than the level of the road, leave your car and lie in that area, covering your head with your hands. Your choice of whether to stay in your car should be driven by your specific circumstances. These are last resort options that provide little protection.
