Certain areas of nearly any city with 1M+ people could be considered a high-crime area.
Most of Charlotte is very safe, but random crime does happen even in the nicest areas.

The best thing would be to tell us approximately where your husband will be working, and we will help you the best we can.

Congrats and welcome to Charlotte!

This video is a real life documentary of Charlotte.

YouTube - Mad Max Road Warrior (Trailer)

That should answer any questions.



(sorry couldn't resist...it's just the urge I get when I see sweeping generalizations about an area)

Hi, thanks for your prompt response. What you mean by city with 1M+ people? My husband office located in Nations Ford Road. Also, isnt must buy car in NC? Transport convenient? Lady can walk alone in street? I checked internet and showed that Charlotte is high serious crime like rape, gun robbery....

Charlotte has some "ladies" that walk the streets in relative safety.

He means our metro area is a population of 1 million - Charlotte iteself has about 650,000 people. Where are you moving from??? There may be a few parts of Charlotte where a lady wouldn't want to walk at midnight by herself, but overall this is a fairly safe city.

Nations Ford is a sketchy part of town. A car is a must-have in Charlotte.

I know people like to joke on these boards, but I was a victim of crime in Charlotte more than any other place I've lived. I don't find it funny.

When you're alone with your three children at 3 in the morning and someone is breaking into your house, you'd like the police to get there in less than 25 minutes.

Perhaps they were writing someone a ticket for an expired tag like I received on the way to the office this morning (exp by 48 hours).

Glad someone has their finger on CLT's serious issues and not concerned with revenue generation.

To PowerBolt - many people like to joke around, please don't get anxious. To be serious, tell us where you are moving from and what part of Nation's Ford his office is on. You potentially could live on the South Carolina side (and the SC police are stricter on criminals).

I worry that english is not your native language and that you might be confused or insulted or misled by someone making a joke.
