The Valley has so many great things to do at night. From great restaurants, to bars to clubs, there is always a place to go! However, while you’re exploring all the Valley has to offer, it’s important to be aware that there are ways to be safe and not to be safe while out at night. Featured below are some safety tips to make sure you end your night with only happy memories.
1. Safety in Numbers
Not only is one lonely number, but an unsafe way to go out. There’s more security with a big group of people late at night rather than an individual or two. While avoiding dark areas such as alleys and using the sidewalk, walk in groups whenever you have the opportunity and walk with confidence at a steady pace.
2. Avoid Excessive Drinking
Yes, we all have those nights where we drink too much. However, making it a habit can put yourself and others at danger. Alcohol affects everyone differently, so be smart and know how alcohol affects you personally. You know your limits, so don’t let your friends talk you into taking that extra shot.
3. “Wing-Man” responsibilities
Being a “wing-man (or woman)” for your friend comes with an unsaid list of responsibilities that are sometimes easily forgotten. Ladies, watch your friends drink when she leaves it. If you lose your friend at the bar, don’t just make the assumption that they’re okay. Make it a point to always know where your friends are, it could save their life.
