From an accident perspective yes. I avoid downtown as much as possible these days and drive very defensively. From a crime perspective the car gives you added protection. You’re better off locked in your car than standing alone waiting for public transportation.

Baltimore has a large number of state, local, and federal employees. A large majority of which are now remote. Even other private companies have moved to remote. I haven’t used the light rail since March 2020 and I absolutely would not do it again because ridership is so low it’s too risky as a woman to ride alone. Especially with no people around.

Baltimore is statistically much worse as far as violent crime when compared to the majority of American cities. There’s a few that beat us I think only St. Louis and Chicago as far as homocide rates . But I also think the violence there is a lot more contained to certain areas since they are much larger than Baltimore.
