Note: Stay aware of your surroundings. Scan the scene and people are you — do they look like they have legitimate business/purpose to be in the area? If things don’t feel ‘right’ or safe to you, leave. You can always go back another time or with a buddy. Don’t allow yourself to be distracted by cell phones, over-loaded with parcels or bags, and if you would like an escort to your vehicle at a business, just ask the management/employees. Awareness of who and what is around you is a great habit to start if you don’t practice ‘situational awareness’ already.
