Best Practices for Commuting
 
All members of the Georgetown SCS community should use their best judgment when commuting in the city. Here are a few tips you should adopt to be proactive about your personal safety:
  • Be aware of your surroundings at all times; do not distract yourself by texting or talking on your cell phone
  • Walk in groups of three or more persons to Metro stations or parking lots/garages
  • Do not use earbuds or headphones when walking, which can distract you from drivers and other pedestrians
  • Secure your bags, purses and electronic devices; ensure all compartments on your bags are zipped or closed and hold your bags and other belongings close and tight to your body
