Jogging while earphones plugged: This is one of the riskiest ways to be walking around in a public place. You are simply shutting one of your two primary senses which may prevent an attack, your hearing ability. The chances of an attack significantly increase if you are in an isolated corner.
Busy texting or talking on phone: If you are texting a friend or are in a conversation at a public spot and totally engrossed, criminals can easily tell that. As you may be totally distracted, you won’t even notice.
Hanging your bag loosely on the side that’s near the road: If you are doing this, you may literally be perceived as ‘begging’ to be thieved. The thief can snatch your bag away and just swoop away on the road.
Being low on confidence: If you are low on confidence, you may not attract an audience after you have been attacked. This usually happens among young adolescents as they may be too embarrassed to demand attention at such a time.
Parking your car next to a cargo van: This is the worst parking spot you can choose as it obstructs your sight. Any criminal can be hiding behind the van and can attack you easily.
There are only the popular signs, people should be more careful when going outside.
