Marrakesh Secure Transportation Services
ETS Security Overview - Morocco
Most crimes committed against U.S. tourists and visitors occur in Marrakech, Casablanca, Tangier, Fez, and Rabat; the vast majority of these are pickpocketing, bag snatching, and muggings. Most tourist destinations are densely packed and therefore a perfect environment for opportunistic street crime. Criminals focus on high-traffic and high-density areas such as tourist sites, markets, medinas, and festivals. There have been incidents involving the use of knives against tourists in street attacks, thefts, and burglaries. Petty crime is common, especially in tourist areas like the medina quarter of towns/cities and on beaches Women should exercise caution, particularly when traveling alone as they could be vulnerable to unwanted attention or harassment
There is a medium threat from terrorism in Morocco. Terrorist attacks could be indiscriminate. The Moroccan authorities have warned of an increased threat linked to the growing number of Moroccans sympathetic or belonging to ISIS and other extremist groups, and regularly report the disruption of terrorist cells, some of which intended to carry out attacks in Morocco. In the 2018 attack, extremists claiming allegiance to ISIS specifically targeted two female Scandinavian tourists, following them into a remote hiking area near Imlil, and murdered them.
Morocco has a poor road safety record. In 2013, nearly 4,000 people were killed and over 100,000 injured as a result of traffic incidents. Road Traffic Crashes (RTCs) are a major concern. Driving in Morocco can be erratic, aggressive, and even reckless. It is common to see vehicles driving counter-flow into oncoming traffic and ignoring stop signs or traffic signals.
