Do you feel safe enough in your neighborhood to take a nighttime walk?

Very safe...I love my beach side village... :)

Gellianne said...

Yes, we do. We are paying for the security guards, anyways...

Kidding aside, this is a quiet environment we have here. But we are moving out and the place we will go to is not that safe...yes, no security guards there!

There have been a lot of stabbings in London recently and quite a few shootings but I try not to let that worry me.

Having said that I rarely go out at night anyway, I'm always on the blog! lol

Well, Barb, I live an hour outside of New Orleans, therefore we have been bombarded by the drug dealers, etc. thanks to Katrina. With that being said, I feel safe if hubby is with me but I don't feel "comfortable" going out too too late. I'm sure it's probably safe but I'm just a big ole chicken. I miss the good ole days pre-Katrina. :sigh:

Oh yeah lol. Compared to where I did live, this is like Disney World :)

yes, but this area is tricky. the neighborhoods seem to alternate between ghetto and very wealthy. There are people who literally drive to a different neighborhood a few blocks down the road so they can take a stroll. There seems to be several blocks where I live, however, that are safe to walk in without the hassle of driving. But I still take the dogs because kc is still too close for comfort.

i do feel pretty safe here in Boise, Idaho. My neighborhood is not (by far) the best and we do have our problems, but i will walk at night and an even bigger gage is that i will still allow my 13 and 14 year old boys to walk from place to place at night.

Gretchen said...

Always. I can be found roaming around at all hours of the night and day. It's not unusual to find me out at 1 or 2 a.m., taking the dog for a walk.

Misty Dawn said...

Most definitely. The only thing that gives me the creeps is the coyotes.

Only in a bullet-proof bubble. :-0 Okay, so it's not quite that bad, but no, it's definitely not a "safe" neighborhood.

Teri said...

absolutely!

I would if it weren't for the teenagers & their speeding & obviously being bored enough to maybe do something stupid. (Oh, wow, how old do I sound??)

Heart of Rachel said...

I feel safe walking around at night because of the good security of our village. There are roving security guards on motorcycles who periodically goes around.

No, not alone. Perhaps in a group, but never by myself.

The Curmudgeon said...

Yes.

My town is split half affluent and half rural farming. I think it is quite nice. So Yeah. If I wanted to walk at night I would feel safe enough. I won't walk at night though just because.

Tammy said...

The only that might jump out at me is a wild animal, and I'm not talking about a guy. LOL

Bethany said...

Not here in the City but at my parents' place, absolutely. I've done it more times than I can count.

forgetfulone said...

Great HoT post! Thanks, Barb. This really made me think.

My brother in law is afraid to go outside by himself after dark because it is very dark! lol There have been moments when I worried that the coyotes (or bears) were watching me or my dogs. Does that count?

Sheen said...

Oh... I have deleted a number of blogs too (love or hate blah blah).

Hey it's Amy Shipp said...

Yes, with my doggie. But not late. I will go as the sun is setting and be home just after dark. Sometimes I go running with her at night. But not after 9:30 I am a little nervous tho...

Smalltown RN said...

Smalltown RN said...

Sandy M said...
