Never thought it would come to this. When walking in the vicinity of cars, keep your radar up. Don’t assume that driver who is motioning for you to walk past the front of his car while he waits for you to cross is on the up and up. We can’t go live in caves. We still have to cross streets where cars are passing by. Just use your senses make decisions based on what you see and feel. If it doesn’t feel right to cross in front of a stopped car with a driver who is motioning for you to cross, then don’t do it. If you do cross, be alert in case the driver suddenly lurches forward.
After the attack today in a church in South Texas, always know where the exits are whenever you enter a building, any kind of building. If you go to an upper floor, make sure you know where those exits are, too. Go about your business, but know the exits so you’ll be prepared to make a quick getaway if necessary. Be aware and stay safe.
