When walking or cycling



• Keep valuables in a safe place and do not carry large amounts of cash.

• Dress appropriately and make sure you (and your bicycle) are visible, especially after dark.

• Walk on the pavement, facing oncoming traffic. When crossing the road remember that vehicles drive on the right in the RF so will approach you from the left.

• Carry a torch after dark and do not take short cuts, for example, through dark alleyways.

• If you feel you are being followed, cross the street (more than once if necessary), and if you are still unhappy move as quickly as possible to a public area, such as a restaurant or bar, and telephone for help. It is not necessarily the best idea to use the first telephone that you see if it is in an isolated spot.

• To remain safe and alert don't listen to a personal stereo or have long conversations on a mobile phone while you are walking.
