Situational Awareness is something most people have a lack of on a normal daily basis. With everything going on in our daily lives and the introduction of text and smart phones most people are so focused on whats going on with their social media sites or other time consuming tasks that they no longer worry about whats happening around them. Also somewhat a sense of false security and safety.
Being a Ex State Correctional Officer where I worked was basically a city filled with criminals. Situational awareness became a daily way of life. I also came from a City in Louisiana where you constantly had to be aware of everything around you at all times or you may possibly be putting yourself between a gang shootout or a victim of a carjacking or the person pulling up next to you at a stoplight brandishes a weapon at you with an evil grin. So I personally have a heightened awareness because of my life experiences and the type of work I performed, but unfortunately most do not.
