    Ensuring safety leaving a night spot

    Whether you are leaving a nightclub, restaurant or the cinema at night you need to be more cautious to avoid getting injured from a slip, trip or fall or worse, being attacked, ensuring your safety leaving a night spot.

    Why are you more likely to have a slip, trip or fall or worse at night?

    Visibility is considerably lower at night so it is harder to see such things as uneven pavement or potholes which could cause a trip injury. Also, the dark makes it easier for people to hide which means that if you are on your own and in a quiet area you could be open to a lot worse than just a slip, trip or fall.

    How to ensure safety when leaving a nightspot

    The most important thing that you should avoid in order to ensure your safety is trying not walk alone in the dark. Being on your own whether you are a male or a female leaves you open to attacks causing injuries much worse than a simple slip, trip or fall. As well as this you need to be extra aware of your surroundings. This will mean you will see that uneven ground thus preventing that trip injury and also could mean you avoid that particularly dark alleyway.

    If you do have to walk in areas that are badly lit, make sure you have a torch with you so that you can light the path in front of you. This will make it easier to prevent a slip, trip or fall and may discourage potential attackers as it will be harder to sneak up on you.
