Quick Tip – Mugging Prevention
The best way to stay safe is to stay aware. Set the tone with a confident walk. Keep your head up, shoulders back, and look around. Continue being aware of your surroundings even in a place where visibility is reduced, like when you’re at an ATM or a gas station pump.
In these places, you often face the station—leaving you unable to see your surroundings and vulnerable for a mugging. Instead, of facing the ATM or gas pump, stand sideways. This will allow you to see in front of you, to the side, and behind you.
Stay safe out there!
