Check Your Reflection for Safety

Published: Nov 02, 2017

When moving about any kind of urban environment, take the time to glance at your reflection in shop windows or any other reflective surface to make sure no one is trying to come up behind you and touch you, your chair, or your service animal.

I find this to be especially helpful on hills or anywhere else my movements might be seen as me “struggling”. My sudden (and “unexplained”) awareness of someone’s presence before they reach me makes them think twice about what they are about to do.
