FIND ME A HOME ON A CUL-DE-SAC; WE HAVE ALWAYS LIKED CULS-DE-SAC!
Unbelievably, I have had the above request. Maybe you have never thought of the KIND of street you want to live on. This type of dead-end street, first seen in Egypt in 1885 BC, kept traffic away from residential streets because of children who were playing near their homes. With the perception of more safety, a child living on a cul-de-sac is often encouraged to go outside to play.
Culs-de-sac have many advantages over normal streets. Real estate values are often higher. They reduce noise and pollution since there is much less traffic traveling on them. The nature of one-way-in, one-way-out often discourages criminals, who want to move more quickly and un-obtrusively. Very few accidents occur on these streets.
A cul-de-sac (literally “butt of the sack” in French), often is interconnected with foot and bike paths, increasing active mobility among residents. Additionally, culs-de-sac increase neighborhood awareness and sense of ownership.
Are there disadvantages to this street location? Experts have combed the think tanks. About the only criticism they could muster was that the extra driving in and out of the street increases gas consumption and emissions! You be the judge, do the other beneficial features of this life-style out-weigh this paltry disadvantage?
