Top Ten Ways to Avoid Getting Robbed at Night

I know it's probably easy to get robbed out there, so stay safe, people!

The Top Ten

1 Never travel alone

It's good to go out with friends or family that you can trust, if not, you make an easy target because you are alone. - Flair-de-lis

I'll travel with myself then. - Cyri

2 Don't carry big luggage

Luggage may not be the correct word for this, but still! If it's big, it's a target! - Flair-de-lis

Especially if it has good value. - Randomator

3 Look confident on where you are going

Nervous people can easily be robbed in the streets! I have seen it happen myself! - Flair-de-lis

4 Do not walk into unfamiliar areas

Know your neighborhood and your surroundings. Know which areas are dangerous! - Flair-de-lis

Not a good idea to go somewhere that seems sketchy - Randomator

5 Do not walk into dark areas

They say dark alleys are where all those criminals are hiding! - Flair-de-lis

Don't visit my mind, kids. It gets dark when I'm writing backstories. - Cyri

6 Lock belongings that you leave behind

It's not good to have your stuff stolen when you don't realize it. You just have to lock it. If something is broken, well, at least that's a telltale sign that you at least locked it! - Flair-de-lis

7 Don't carry good food with you

Criminals can actually be attracted to food, especially since many are poor. They'd do anything to get a bite to eat. - Flair-de-lis

8 Get to your destination quickly

This would probably be important if you are in a crime-ridden neighborhood. If you are, get to your destination as soon as you can! - Flair-de-lis

9 Do not carry or wear shiny things like jewelry

Anything with high value is a target - Randomator

10 Travel in places with lots of people

This coincides with never traveling alone, but since most of the people you meet on the streets are strangers, well there's not much you can say. The best practice is to travel in public places where people are likely to walk. It seems counter-intuitive, but all you gotta do is watch your own pockets and keep it up and guess what, you're probably gonna be fine! - Flair-de-lis

The Contenders
