INFORMATION AND USEFUL ADVICE
Beware of thieves and pickpockets. As transportation professionals, we face this problem more or less directly. From time to time, a colleague, a customer, the employee of a hotel or ourselves are victims or witnesses of a theft or attempted theft. Pickpockets do not operate only in the tourist areas of Barcelona, such as the Gothic Quarter or Barceloneta, but also in Eixample, or other areas further away from the center. Even Montserrat or Barcelona airport are not an exception, especially because of the number of tourists and foreign travelers that are there. Of course, the fact that thieves can be everywhere does not mean that they are numerous. In general, pickpockets operate smoothly without the victim realizing it. Anyway, with a little common sense and caution, it is very likely that nothing will happen to you. If for example, you are at the terrace of a café or in the hall of a station, always keep an eye on your mobile phone or your bag, In the metro or crowded places, it is advisable to keep your bag in front of you and not on the back. If a person asks you for information on the street, it is better to go leave. If you are in a stationary vehicle, be careful because it is easy for anyone to open a door or put an arm through a window. , take an object and run away
SIDEWALKS AND ZEBRA CROSSINGS
When walking down the street, be careful. Despite the bike paths, scooters or bicycles are still running on the sidewalks, in both directions and without respecting the safety rules. On a zebra crossing, when crossing a bike path, keep in mind that some bikes do not respect your priority. Also watch out for motorcycles and cars that tend not to let you through
