Planning a Trip to Chicago? Here is a List of the city’s most safe and most unsafe locations

The Chicago authorities have issued warning for residents and tourists to avoid certain neighborhoods, roads, and intersections throughout the state.

‘The Pizza Hub’ of The United States 

Chicago is one of the most popular cities of the United States of America. The city is specifically famous for its food, some of the most famous being the Italian beef sandwiches and the deep-dish pizza.

However, this city has also gained notoriety in the past few years for being a dangerous state due to its increasing crime rate and unpredictable traffic intersections.

In addition to this, the city of Chicago has also seen a considerable increase in the number of car accidents in recent years. State authorities have advised residents that in case a car accident was to happen, the involved victims should get in touch with an experienced personal injury lawyer from the local area.

The hired lawyer will have the appropriate means to carry out a legal investigation into the accident and determine the victim’s chances of filing a personal injury claim or lawsuit to seek monetary damages from the state.

With that out of the way, let’s take a look at some of the most unsafe Chicago neighborhoods based on current administrative reports:

South Chicago

What Makes a Place ‘Unsafe?’

Across the globe, several locations across several countries have been labeled as ‘dangerous’ or ‘unsafe to travel.’ Several factors contribute to making a geographical location unsafe or dangerous.

The most obvious factor is how active crime rings/ organization are in that specific location/area. Any location that was struggling with a high level of crime is an automatic no for individuals, especially tourists and non-residents.

In addition to this, other minor factors that contribute to a state being as labeled as ‘safe’ or ‘unsafe’ are: the state’s total population, the number of vehicles that occupy the roadway on a daily basis, the number of roadway accidents in a year, and so on. Irrespective of the nation, tourists everywhere are advised to avoid areas that might be susceptible any of these factors in order to have a safe and eventful trip.
