Walking Safety Tips

When possible, walk with others.
Always walk or travel in areas well lit and that have plenty of other people around. Avoid being isolated from others as much as possible.
Try to always walk on the side of the street facing traffic to avoid being followed by an automobile.
Avoid more commonly isolated places, such as: stairways of building, alleys, industrial areas, and some elevators.
Be aware of potential hiding spots for attackers.
Avoid wearing headphones. As you should expect, studies have shown that our ability to be focused on our surroundings are significantly reduced when walking or running with headphones on.
If you feel that you're being followed, turn and look back to see who it is. If you feel threatened, run or walk briskly to a group of people and tell them your concern, or go to the nearest home or open business and call the police. If you run to a home, shout, "FIRE," instead of, "Help,". If absolutely necessary, use your shoe or belt to break a window to get attention quicker.
Do not walk alone when you've been drinking alcohol, have taken medication, or while in a fragile emotional state.
Plan your route and avoid short cuts through parks, vacant lots, or poorly lit areas.
Carry coins to make emergency calls in the event that you don't have your cell phone, the batteries have gone dead, or your phone has been stolen.
If someone attempts to attack you in a public facility such as a hotel, motel or restroom, scream at the top of your lungs, "Fire! Fire!". Studies have shown that people are more apt to respond if they feel threatened by fire.
