Recommendations:

Do not stop at a gas station or party store within the City proper for any reason.

Leave adequate distance between your vehicle and others.  Yield right of way on freeways: there have been 18 shootings since June 15th. Do not travel alone, park in visible, attended lots.  Don’t go sightseeing where you don’t belong i.e. neighborhoods
