Therefore, you do not know what is going on around you, that is, locally. If you are in or close to a city, you may be able to get local TV (news) but in smaller towns this is not possible. The result is that it becomes difficult to determine just how “safe” an area is whether you are traveling through or are stopping for the night (or longer).
