South Bloomfield is a very quiet town, which is likely to be my favorite thing about the town. I am quite content to be alone and be left alone in my home. There are some exceptions, however. The entire government of the town is a for-profit industry. Their dealings with utilities is shady at best and the police are there more for traffic tickets than for the safety of the town.

My only issue is when it snows and the pot holes. They are every where and they don't get filled quick enough. A lot of people get flat tires over these. Driving in the country while its snowing is very dangerous. The only way i can get home from work is through a back road and there aren't any lights! I can't see a thing at night.
I live in the country so there aren;t any street lights or sidewalks. A lot of people walk on the grass and the road and that can be very dangerous at night. Some of these people aren't very smart either. There are a lot of people that wear black or dark clothing so I can't see them while i am driving. Where i used to live there was a curfew and streetlights everywhere. Cops made sure that if your were older than 18 and you were out walking then you had to wear visible colors at night or the reflecting jackets.
