We live in an older house, at least 40 years old in an older, decent and nice neighborhood. Personally, it is an ideal place to raise kids because it is quiet, wider neighborhood streets, well-kept yards, no low-hanging pants people can be seen on our streets and most of all, a presence of a sheriff that patrols the entire neighborhood everyday. I can see them passing by our street at least two or three times a day and a volunteer citizen patrol. I feel safer a little bit seeing them but even that, we cannot be sure that we don’t get our house ransacked or burglarized so it is all up to us to be vigilant and take proper precaution when it comes to our protecting our belongings and install security cameras in our house.
The only thing I can complain in this neighborhood is that people tend to drive very fast, over than the speed they are supposed to drive which is 30 MPH. One time, there was this fast car passing by our street one morning and there were two cute chihuahua mixed dogs, one got hit and died on the spot. I am afraid that because of these reckless drivers that one of my girls could get hit one day too, God forbid.
I couldn’t be any feel safer than here. If you watch the local news everyday, you would know the neighborhoods often mentioned on the news that are prone to gang-related crimes, drugs, rapes, robbery and driveway attacks. Most of these neighborhoods are located in bigger cities like Dallas and etc.
