We live a nice peaceful suburban life, and although extend transportation provides more access to varying areas it also provides easier access to criminals. Look at the crime level that is going on in Buckhead, and Atlanta is now in the top 10 for Crime across the U.S. Bringing MARTA would lend itself to bringing down the serenity and quality of life, by providing easier access to the same element. Statistically there is proven data that extending low cost public transportation to higher tax/property value areas around the U.S. has increase the crime in those areas requiring increase police protection and decreased property value. Also, famlies begin to move further away. Easy access is not always better, and in most instances it is never better.
