riding the city bus puts your life in danger...and you will definitely get mugged

This is what my husband told me. He says that since I will be preoccupied with two small children I will not notice any potential dangers and I am putting myself in a risky situation, and that I should completely avoid the city bus.

Do you agree or disagree with his views?

I guess it would depend on what city you are in.

I live in Baltimore, I agree to an extent.  We have crime on busses and bus stops everyday. You just need to be very mindful of your surroundings, you cannot allow the kids to distract you. And carry mace!

I disagree with him to an extent, though you have to admit a city bus isn't the safest place to be- depending of the time of day.  Then again, thousands of people ride the bus every day without incident.  I'm sure he is just worried about you and your kiddos, which is really sweet.

well being that i take the city bus all the time esp since i don't drive i kinda disagree with him.  However on the subway I've run into a few shady characters over the years altho never been mugged, while riding public transportation anyway.  

What city are you in?

I disagree.  One can get robbed anywhere.  However you can always tell him fine, buy me a nice new car....
