I would like for some of the lights in Kempsville area to be changed, there are a few lights that do not have a yield turning signal when there should definitely be one.

I like that we’re located in the middle of Hampton roads. I don’t appreciate the increase in crime though.
Lived here for 3 years and it's a very quiet, friendly, and safe neighborhood. Great for a new family.
