Stay Safe

Avalon's police force is EXTREMELY strict and traffic laws are enforced rigorously. Do NOT speed above the limit. The town's main roads are all equipped with cameras and speed limit trackers to catch careless drivers. It is very unwise to drink and drive, especially after the bars close. Cops are always outside when the bars let out and have no problem pulling over cars and breathalyzing the passengers. Follow the rules and you will be fine.

Avalon is a very safe town. Violent crime is extraordinarily rare and even women can walk around at night with nothing to fear.
