Although vehicles are supposed to stop when the streetcar doors open, some motorists and cyclists will ignore this and keep going so please be careful when getting off the streetcars and look always to your right before leaving the car.

Parts of Toronto have a visible homeless population and so you may get asked for money. You may find this a bit startling but please note, you do not need to give them money and can simply say “no, thank you,” or ignore them.

Petty crime is generally not a large-scale problem in Toronto, but as always, keep vigilant with your possessions and avoid keeping valuables in outer pockets.

When withdrawing cash from ATM try to go inside the bank. Beware of withdrawing cash from cash points on pedestrian walkways. Try to withdraw small sums and don’t flash your cash around even in the bank.
