Tip of the week

When traveling via public transportation, use well-lit, busy stops. Stay alert, and avoid dozing or daydreaming on the bus.

Loudly say, “Leave me alone” if someone hassles you. Watch who gets off with you at your stop, and if you feel uneasy, walk directly to a place where there are other people.
