Crime and insecurity
The level of crime within the Prague metro system is conceived
to be low as compared to West-European systems. The only exceptions
to this seem to be the number of pickpocketings, graffiti, and
vandalism. Although still not as frequent as in the West, these
crimes are on the rise as a result of the transition of the Czech
Republic towards a more westernized society.
