Stay Safe

California-Mexico Border

Due to California's proximity to the International Boundary with Mexico, visitors should be cautious while in areas near the border.

  • Know where you are at all times, follow good safety procedures and use common sense when making decisions.
  • Do not pick-up hitch hikers.
  • Keep valuables, including spare change, out of sight and lock your vehicle.
  • Avoid traveling in well-marked but unofficial "trails."
  • Avoid hiking or camping in areas of major border activity. If you are visiting a national or state park, consult park staff to help plan backcountry travel in safer areas.
  • Report any suspicious behavior to the U.S. Border Patrol.

Crossing The Border

Thousands of U.S citizens visit the state of Baja California, Mexico from California every year with the majority of travelers returning from an enjoyable experience. However, a minority of travelers do experience difficulties and serious inconveniences while traveling to Mexico. Before traveling to Mexico, ensure that you have the proper documentation and are familiar with the recommendations for foreign travel from the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Consular Affairs


As a whole, California has a relatively high crime rate when compared to many other states. The usual inner city crime can be found in the worst parts of Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Oakland. Central Valley cities, such as Sacramento, Stockton, and Fresno also have gang problems. Northern coastal cities such as Eureka have an ongoing problem with significant drug activity, primarily the prevalence of methamphetamine, and property crimes. However, most California cities are very safe. As long as you take basic precautions against petty crime and stay out of obviously run-down neighborhoods, you will probably have a safe and pleasant visit. Be smart and you will be safe.

If you are traveling along the Pacific Coast Highway or Highway 101, you may notice there are a substantial number of hitch-hikers along the way. Most hitchhikers are friendly and present no danger, however, use caution when picking them up.

Drugs are illegal in California. That being said, California has one of the most tolerant positions regarding marijuana in the country. In the some parts of California (San Francisco, Mendocino County, Oakland, Santa Cruz, Parts of Los Angeles, Coastal San Diego, parts of Lake Tahoe) a very European attitude toward marijuana can often be found. While possession without a doctors recommendation is still illegal it is considered a minor offense. If you are caught you will either be told to throw it away or at worst given a $100 fine. It is always best to be discreet and avoid doing things that will bring attention in public.

If you find yourself in an emergency situation (of any kind), dial 911 on your phone.

Law enforcement

There are four major types of law enforcement you may encounter in California.

On state-maintained freeways and highways and in some rural areas you will most commonly encounter officers of the California Highway Patrol (made famous by the late 1970s TV show CHiPs), who wear beige uniforms with blue trim. In recent years they have used Ford Crown Victoria cruisers and BMW motorcycles, but are currently in the midst of a transition to Ford Explorer Police Pursuit Vehicles and Harley Davidson motorcycles.

In many suburbs and rural towns, you will encounter deputies of the sheriff for that county. Sheriff uniforms vary but are beige in most counties. Most urban sheriff's deputies drive Ford Crown Victoria cruisers or similar sedan-type vehicles while rural sheriff's deputies drive a variety of sport-utility vehicles or light trucks.

In cities, especially large ones, you will encounter police officers from the relevant city police department. Police uniforms are usually black. Most police departments drive Ford Crown Victoria cruisers or are currently transitioning to the Chevrolet Caprice or Dodge Charger.

Finally, you may encounter certain special-district police departments like BART Police.

All these types of officers are trained to uniform baseline standards set by the statewide Commission on Police Standards and Training (POST), and all of them are typically armed with a handgun and sometimes, a nonlethal weapon like a Taser.

As with U.S. law enforcement in general, California law enforcement officers have a strong tradition of honesty and professionalism, and there is zero tolerance for petty corruption like soliciting or taking bribes. Most police scandals in California arise from the use of grossly excessive force (often after an officer overreacted to an ambiguous or complex situation). Therefore, if you encounter a law enforcement officer, stay calm, follow directions, and do not make sudden moves which could be interpreted as a threat.


Earthquakes that are large enough to cause extensive damage are rare, but remain a matter of reality for the state. The biggest dangers in an earthquake are falling objects and windows which shatter explosively. In the event of an earthquake, face away from windows and hide under any sturdy table or desk that may be available. If you are indoors, do not run outside! Falling building facades are more likely to cause severe injuries than anything inside. Contrary to popular belief do not stand in a door frame. It is not safe at all, this is merely a myth. You're more likely to get your fingers caught in the frame from all the shaking and swinging of the door than gain protection from a falling object. If outdoors, stay away from buildings and stay out from under power lines.


Along the southernmost portion of the California-Nevada border and the, as well as the California-Arizona border, California has desert landscapes which extend into the south-central regions of the state; the most famous (or infamous) being the region known as Death Valley, where numerous hapless tourists and hikers have indeed met an unfortunate fate while exploring the region.

If you are planning on traveling or hiking into these locations, follow desert survival guidelines. Be sure to take plenty of water (at least one gallon per person, per day), sunscreen and wear light clothing. Let someone know where you are going and when you expect to get return.

Be sure to have a full tank of gasoline, a fully charged cell phone in working condition, and multiple bottles of water prior to traveling by car into these regions. Many desert locations are extremely remote and without any services for many miles (in some cases nearly 100 miles). A vehicle breakdown in the desert is extremely unpleasant in the best-case scenario and tragic in the worst.

Also, it is best to hike during the earlier part of the day, as thunderstorms tend to develop suddenly during the afternoon. In the event you encounter inclement weather conditions, seek high ground immediately! Thunderstorms can cause flash flooding in canyons and other low-lying areas.


Although Southern California is world-famous for sunny weather, much of California suffers from heavy fog in the morning during certain times of year, particularly the Central Valley and some smaller valleys in Northern and Central California. Even coastal areas in Southern California sometimes see fog in the summer (the notorious "June gloom").

Fog usually causes a massive (and often deadly) freeway pileup somewhere in the state approximately every three to five years. Exercise extreme caution when traveling in areas where heavy fog is forecast.


The incidence of Earthquakes in California raises the concern for potential threats of Tsunamis. Though very rare to occur, it should be noted that a great deal of California's coastline is in a Tsunami zone. For more information on the state's hazard assessment, visit the NOAA Center for Tsunami Research website .


Wildfires are quite common between May and October. Take a few precautions - throw out cigarette butts into trashcans, clear the area around campfire pits/rings in campgrounds, never leave flames unattended (even artificial ones), avoid weapon use in dry areas. The strongest impact from fires is smoke. Smoke affects areas dramatically exceeding the size of the root fire. Travelers with respiratory issues should consult visitor information sites before visiting areas where fires are occurring.
