Abstract

This chapter aims to explore the use of precautionary behaviors by public transit users. It distinguishes between two types of precautionary behavior: avoidance and risk management strategies. Following a literature review on precaution nary behaviors, the chapter draws data from five of the cities examined earlier in this book – Guangzhou (China), London (UK), Los Angeles (USA), Paris (France), and Vancouver (Canada) to examine how student riders in these cities respond to the risk of victimization in transit environments. This is followed by a discussion of the findings, conclusions, and an overall assessment of the findings.
