Latané and Darley (1970) point out that sometimes people feel too embarrassed or socially awkward to help others in a public setting. When bystanders do not help out of a fear of being judged it is called Audience Inhibition. Another time in which helping does not occur is when the costs of doing so are simply not worth it. In these situations, such as when violence is a factor, indirect help by calling 911 may be the only safe option.
