Are you aware? When you step outside do you know what is around you, or are you depending on your phone for answers. I really don’t know how much I pay attention to my surroundings these days, but I would say its above average. Usually I know how many cars are around me when driving and what I need to do if something happens. E brake is always an option. Some of this may have come from riding street bikes. You have to ride in a defensive position and never assume the cars around see you. But when I walk at night I scan the shadows and look for movement, maybe just an old habit but it helps to keep surprises at a minimum.
But if you choose to walk around blind it’s not a big deal, just remember you can use that phone to beat someone down before calling for help. That is if needed of course.
