On New Year's Eve, everyone is encouraged to use public transportation as much as possible, because the main road will be very crowded and taxis will face more serious traffic jams.

Celebrating New Year's Eve is a great day to celebrate the whole world, but on this day, a large number of people gather and crowd, not only may cause stampede accidents, but also give terrorists an opportunity.

Not long ago, the Melbourne police had captured criminals who claimed to have committed terrorist attacks on Federation Square on New Year's Eve, but the threat still exists!

The editor also reminds everyone that you must check the location of the emergency exit in advance during the game. If you encounter a critical situation, please ask the police uncle for help!

I wish you all a happy new year!
