Don't fall on them. Or let anyone push you onto them. For obvious reasons.
Other than that.....I can't think of anything to warn you about in St. Goar. It is a lovely town, and I felt completely safe there, morning, noon, and night. Just use common sense as always.

trains in the Rhine-valley are terrible all night
Take a look at my picture - I took it on the terrace of a hotel and restaurant in Bacharach. When you simply book a hotel in advance in any town along the river Rhine, it could easily be that you will stay in a hotel, where trains pass by in distance of just a few meters and you will not be able to sleep, because the Rhine-valley has trains all day and night, every 20-30 minutes !!
Bacharach for instance has a row of hotels facing the Rhine & the train-line like on my picture. In the back of the village there are places, where the noises are almost gone, simply because a wall of houses makes sure you will not hear any trains. Hotel im Malerwinkel is such a quiet place in Bacharach and the hostel Stahleck inside the castle of course...
Choose your hotel carefully - when-ever possible I explained the "noise-situation" for each town along the Rhine and all my hotel-tips on this page !!

at least on sunday evenings you won´t find any open gas station between Rüdesheim and Koblenz on the Rhine bank....;-) ...so, be careful and be sure your tank is well filled to avoid unneeded stress....
