In certain areas downtown yeah. My suburb not at all.
I'm afraid to walk down my hallway that leads to my room
No. When I lived in the city I was told there was an area you absolutely don't go after a certain time. I was told this after I had spent months walking through that area on the way home.. But I never seen anyone so I don't know what they were on about.
A mild jog is sometimes needed
Yes, I don't trust some streets at night
