Crime & Safety
I have lived in the Belverdere Community from 1979-2004. When we first moved in there wasn't many children to play with. When other families moved in I was able to make friends. The community was quiet, and very safe. Growing up in the community everyone was very friendly. We all became a family. We shared the same school and we visited each other daily, we had great respect for each other. As a child we all grew up to adulthood together in the neighborhood. We had very little fights, the normal but within 5 minutes we were back playing together. After my mother past away it really wasn't the same living out there. We were all adults had moved on making a life for ourselves leaving out parents to live alone with grandchildren. but we visited frequently. Life was great in the community life would never be the same without it. Memories are cherished forever.
Well, I can say that the neighborhood is pretty quite. I do not have to worry about anyone having their music or radio too loud. Also it is pretty safe around here. And I am close to mostly every store and restaurant.
South Carolina was rated to have some of the worst drivers in America. This is a clearly visible fact where I live. Pedestrians and Bicyclist are not watched after but ignored by most. The parking here is great, on the days that people decide to park in one spot. Driving seems the best way to get around town due to the lack of public transportation. Traffic is only a problem when on I-20 which is accessible less than five minutes from my town, or when there is a accident preventing all lanes from being open.
