Hi guys

Due to a recent lifestyle change, I have to start walking at 5AM (when it’s usually still dark) to get to a destination that’s around a suburb away.

I was just wondering if urban Sydney streets are particularly dangerous at 5am and if there are any chances of being attacked?

Judging by your post it looks like you’re not going to change your routine depending on the answer though?

If so, then the real consideration should be what to do in the unlikely event of it happening, not weighing up the chances of it happening.

In all seriousness, we don't want to be running the risk in the first place. Fighting is one thing, fighting against a guy with a knife or other dangerous weapon is another thing.
Idk maybe I'm just scared of dying after having two near death experiences.
care to elaborate on these experiences?
bomb threat or smth during hsc? lol.

Would really depend on the suburb. I feel like much of Sydney as long as you take reasonable precautions then 5 am would be fine.

Sydney streets are overall safer, at least from my experience living in the Eastern suburbs. I think you’ll be fine although maybe if it is at 5am and there’s people around while it’s reasonably dark I would try to not stay on the same road as others if possible.
