    Muggings are a Common Occurrence

    by saracen Written Jan 3, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As with any city, be careful when out and about as pick-pockets and muggings are rife. Follow the usual rules like try to dress inconspicuously, don't wear expensive or flashy jewelry and stick to well lit areas.

    Especially after dark, don't wander alone, especially if you have been drinking. Also, when leaving clubs etc, make sure you call a taxi in advance and don't accept an offer from the numerous people watining outside. They are not official taxis.

    One common trick used against lone drivers is if you park your car and go off to do your business, when you return you may find a tyre is flat. As you try and change it, someone sneaks up and stealthily opens your car door and removes your valuables.
