Keep emergency numbers on speed dial without fail and memorize what is wear. Make a template so you can quickly send an SOS message.
2. Always Carry a Weapon
No, not a gun. I’m talking about pepper spray or a pop-up knife. And remember, it is not your secret weapon. You don’t have to keep it hidden until you really need to use it.

Always take your personal vehicle and if you don’t have any or if you can’t drink and drive then make prior arrangements with a trustworthy friend to drop you or ask them to pick you up in advance.
4. Avoid Empty Areas
Either you are traveling in a personal vehicle or you are traveling in a rickshaw or taxi, do not go into empty streets and all just for the sake of shortcuts. Not even in the middle of the day.
