5 Ways To Protect Yourself From Getting Mugged In The City

Cases of assault in the city have become rampant recently. And it’s quite a scare for netizens as they cruise the petrifying city streets; some of which have been red-zoned. With netizens on high alert, there’s definitely a few ways you can employ to avoid being a statistic.

To begin with, avoid walking along lonely blind alleys. Most of them are a den that await anyone who seems to be lost. You’ll end up having nowhere to run/hide since most of them are just a cul de sac. Consider using open streets while going to your destination.

The most under-rated method number 2 is walking fast. Most of these hooligans will target someone who seems confused and he/she is walking slowly. Keep up the pace, walk it like you talk it!

Thirdly, situational awareness. Most people are easily robbed in the city for not being aware of their own surrounding(s). While you walk, take a sneak peak of whose around you. Try to beware of anyone who is following you around surreptitiously.

The other obvious method to avoid getting mugged is to walk with friends/company. Tag a friend along after work; or while going to visit new places in the city. This will help you with manpower whenever thug(s) corner you.

Lastly, employ contextual dress-codes when necessary. If you look too fancy & lavish, you’ll be the centre of attraction for thieves. Of course they’re after money and goodies. And your outfit will determine whether they’ll come after you or not. Keep it simple!
