Is West Bloomfield - 48323 (east side of Orchard Lake Rd, and between Lone Pine Rd and W Long lake Rd) a nice and safe area to live in?

Very much yes. No real drawbacks other than it's expensive but that's for being by the lakes.

Traffic is horrible. I have heard people complain about east side traffic. But at least our roads are up to date. Majority of the roads out that way our two lane roads with no center turning lane or passing lane. Traffic get's backed up for miles just due to one person making a left hand turn. Really the roads on the west side should be Four lanes with a center turn lane with all the homes and shopping centers they have built and continue to build. It's not like the area is hurting for money since almost every person is rich out there.

Just make certain you move into the Bloomfield Hills School District portion of that area, which is all but two streets (McQueen and one other) so that you avoid the inferior West Bloomfield School District. Otherwise, yes it is a safe and very nice area to live in.

Take a look at the percentile rankings here:

Doherty is in the top 10th percentile in the state, but Orchard Lake is somewhere in the middle (mediocre).

Yes. The Michigan Department of Education released the report in August of this year.
