How to stay safe at night
It is not necessarily more difficult to stay safe at night, whether you are driving or walking. Although visibility is lower and this can make you more vulnerable to attackers and vehicles, it is also possible to stay safe and ensure that you get from one destination to another without difficulty. Here are some tips on staying safe when you are out and about at night.
Make sure that you are always visible when out at night. If you are walking or riding a bike then wear bright colours or fluorescents, and stick to brightly lit areas. If you are in a car, don’t forget your headlights!
It is crucial to be more aware when you are out at night so that you can identify any hazards before they pose a threat. Keep your eyes ahead of you, look for potential hazards and don’t allow yourself to be distracted with music or by talking on the phone.
Stick to populated areas
You are more at risk of being injured by a mugger or other attacker if you are in a quiet area with few people, houses or shops. If you do have to travel at night, then you should plan your route in advance and try to stick to the busiest areas you can.
Travel in groups
Whether you are on the road or walking, it can be safer to travel with other people. If you are walking, this decreases the possibility of you being approached by a mugger or attacker, and if you are on the road it means that someone else can look out for hazards with you.
