Studies suggest urban areas are less risky for children

Baby & Hood: Studies suggest urban areas are less risky for children: "'It was a beautiful house, but we just ended up living in our car,' she says. 'We lived by [a busy road]. If anything happened, if we left the fence open, my child was literally on a road where traffic was like 80 kilometres an hour.'

...Their arguments are bolstered by a growing body of research showing that the traditional family dream home -- a large house on a big lot in a quiet suburb -- may actually be more dangerous for children than many inner-city neighbourhoods."
