Crime levels are high across the country. However, the rates are higher in areas that are specific tourist locations. The reason for such statistics is simple – people on vacation are generally careless about self defense because they are too busy having a good time that they forget to be alert about attackers, thieves and burglars.
Fear doesn’t just go away overnight, but it can be diminished. Step by step, little by little, one move at a time, one day at a time. Make a commitment to yourself, “I won’t let ____ stop me.” No matter what ‘it’ is. It may slow you down, but don’t let it stop you. Any step you take is progress. Every step you make is progress. Just keep on stepping.

In most states bicycles are required to follow all the rules of the road. You must travel with the flow of traffic and stop at red lights and stop signs. Avoid riding on sidewalks as this can be hazardous to both you and the pedestrians walking. Try and stay on well traveled roads and avoid alleys and other shortcuts. These places are prime locations for attackers to hide and wait for a potential victim to walk or pedal by. Wear the required safety helmets and other protective gear. A fall from a bicycle can lead to some very serious injuries, even at very low speeds.
