Are You a Cool Neighbor?
How close are you to your neighbors? We’re not talking about proximity.
A recent survey from SafeHome.org surveyed more than 1,000 Americans about their neighbor relationships to sort out what neighbors look for in other neighbors, and, if they would “tell on them” if a situation arose.
Depending on what situation occurs in the neighborhood, 38% of neighbors would choose to overlook an offense if it didn’t bother them, whereas 15% stated they have called the police on a neighbor when witnessing some type of occurrence.
So what’s the biggest thing neighbors find annoying or aggravating? – Violating noise ordinances. The survey found that 11% of respondents admitted to the activity in their home or neighborhood, but 26% stated that they were called out for being too loud.
