Travel safety message from An Garda Síochána

16 April 2015

Luas would like you to follow the Gardaí advise people to take some common sense steps to minimise the risk to themselves and their property.

This “streetwise” approach includes:

- Planning your journey, telling someone where you’re going, and using well lit routes to get there

- Being observant and concealing your valuables

- Avoiding making mobile phone calls in public places, but if you have to make or receive a call in public, always do so with your back up against a wall or a shop window etc. so that you can see around you and reduce the opportunity to be attacked from behind

- Being wary of strangers and avoiding confrontation
