I've walked heaps around Wellington, during the day and at night and never felt unsafe, in fact I didn't even bother owning a car while I lived there for three years. There are area's to avoid if you're walking late at night, like anywhere, having said that I did a fair bit of walking at night and didn't feel unsafe.

Dont leave anyting of value in your car not just in Wgtn but anywhere in the world crooks will break a window and take it Some of these people are very smart! if they want it, they will get it. if you have nice wheels on your car you will need a mixture of lock nuts! a security servailance equipment of some sort and a car alarm! MF that ripped my shit off had better hope I dont find them!!!
