Personal Safety Tips
By David Murphy



Play Ball! It’s that time of year again in Arizona – Cactus League Spring Training! While it’s great fun to take in a game with friends and family, it’s also a time to be aware of your personal safety when you’re in public.

Here are a few tips to help keep you and your family safe while enjoying the games.

Driving to and from the game:

-Keep your car in good running order
-Plan your route in advance
-Drive with the doors locked and windows rolled up
-Carpooling is a safe alternative to driving alone
-Don’t stop if another driver tries to force you off the road

Parking:

-Choose well-lit parking areas
-If you have to bring valuables, keep them locked in the trunk
-Always remove the keys and lock the doors
-Be alert in underground or enclosed parking garages

Walking:

-Avoid walking alone. Be confident & walk with purpose
-Choose busy, well-lit walkways and pedestrian flow to and from the parking lots
-Walk facing traffic to see approaching cars
-Earphones make you less able to sense potential danger
-Keep valuables in an inside pocket and, if you have to bring your purse, hold it under your arm so it is harder to snatch

Returning To Your Car:

-Have your keys ready before getting to your car
-Be aware of occupied cars around you
-If you carry packages, keep one hand free
-Check inside and around your car before unlocking the door

Automated Teller Machines (ATM’s)

-Memorize your PIN number
-Have everything ready before arriving
-Be aware of people loitering and sitting in parked cars who may be watching customers transact business
-Never use an ATM after dark

Public Transportation

-Locate well-lit and frequently used bus stops
-Check schedules in advance
-Do not wait alone
-Sit near the driver on busses
-Immediately report incidents of verbal or physical harassment to the driver

Your Safety Is Our Top Priority!
