An impressive array of cab-mounted weaponry will help you to survive.

Trivia

...And (further to Apogee's earlier trivia item), unless I'm very much mistaken, Simon Day (who played Drake Edgewater in the intro movie and provided the shouty rock gem that is used as the intro music) is the same Simon Day who fronted legendary late-80s/early-90s Sydney pop/punk band Ratcat!
