Not the place to be. High crime, robbery, road rage a daily occurrence here. Very unfriendly drivers in this town. Very few who follow traffic laws. People just not very nice here. We are been to Chicago, Minneapolis, Denver, Dallas, New York, Nashville, Indianapolis, Milwaukee, etc. And this city is by far the worst we been to. Des Moines is far better and much more friendly city. We live in Fort Madison for years and find that a much better place to live also. But the State taxes are also very high. Up to 9 percent, maybe that's what makes everybody unset??
