Even though Melbourne is nominated as the most livable city in the world and considered to be safe, some bad things still can happen if you are not being vigilant. Below are the steps to prevent bad things happen to you:
1. Do not walk alone at night times since the number of drunken people there is quite high.
2. Please do follow the traffic lights all the time. People there are very strict to the law and intolerant to offender. Moreover, the fine of breaking the law is very high; it may cost you a fortune.
3. Always remember to check your accommodation before going outside. Make sure the stove is off, windows and doors are locked.
4. If you live alone, make sure you get to know your neighbors.
