If you can read about something in a newspaper this means it is still relatively rare. I guess you don't live right now in any really big city?earthfriendly wrote:So how safe is KL for a person with average street smartness? I have read about robberies resulting in injuries (parking lot) in prestigious mall in KL and the security there had to take counter measures.
Right now, I do not need to look over my shoulders or pay extra attention while frequenting the malls' parking lot, where I live, and wonder how safe is KL compared to my current situation.
Kind of funny, but not surprising: the only time in my whole life I was a victim of a crime was in Singapore - somebody took my old mobile phone from my desk at work.
