I used to always think the higher floors to live are the safest, but honestly, I don't want to be climbing stairs a few times a day, especially if I have a handful of groceries, etc. & I never liked elevators, which are kind of scary too. So, I was thinking the quickest way to get into one's own apt is the best & I'll just put a deadbolt on the door, but as I'm thinking again, I think it's still best to live on a higher floor in which I'll take as many saftey precautions as possible anyway (door jam, window jam, etc) even though I live in a pretty safe city. The complexes in my area don't go that high (3rd floor at most) & it's no good living on the 2nd floor, then you have noise from the people above & below you. Any comments? Also, what other things do you do to stay as safe as possible within your apt & complex?
