I really like this area, especially for the variety of restaurants, cafes, and grocery stores to choose from. I feel so safe living in this area that my friends and I always talk about the "Irvine bubble". I would choose to live here again, because of its safety and cleanness. The roads are smooth, and the street-view is pretty too. I used to live in Atlanta during my elementary years, and I still remember how wet the climate was. Weather-wise, Irvine is sunny and a pleasant area to live in.

I feel very safe in the area, but I see police cars often violating rules on the street. For example, I once saw a police car turning at a stop sign without initiating the turn signal. Aside from these minor details, the overall safety level of this area is extremely high. This is my third year living in Irvine, but I have never witnessed a crime scene. The police is visible, especially around the school parking area, and I see one or two police cars in the school parking lot more often than not.
Irvine is a very safe place. I walk and drive around late at night and I feel safe. The gated communities are very protected and even the un-gated communities are safe as well. I see several police cars drive around everywhere and I am not concerned that they are not doing poorly at their job.
