Well, we had a saying in Kansas. If you don't like the weather, wait 10 minutes.
Here in California, to get from point A to point B, you occasionally have to drive through not-so-nice neighborhoods. If you don't like the neighborhood, just wait 10 minutes. Driving around them is not always practical because of our horrendous traffic problem.
I have friends from all over, even some in the not the best of neighborhoods, but it's just a sad fact of reality that sometimes (i.e., in the evenings) it's best to be aware of the surroundings.
