Pepper Spray Vault/ATM Protection System; a lachrymatory chemical, which causes a burning sensation, agony, and temporary blindness in the eyes. Pepper Spray Vault/ATM Protection System is a stimulant that causes inflammation. The mucous membranes in the eyes, nose, throat, and lungs become inflamed.
Employed in policing, crowd control, and self-defense. Inflammatory effects cause the eyes to shut, obstructing vision temporarily. This momentary blindness allows authorities to control suspects more readily, and it allows those in danger to use pepper spray in self-defense as a means of escaping. It also produces momentary discomfort and a burning sensation in the lungs, also resulting in breathlessness.
