    "I work downtown less than a mile from my home. It usually takes me no more than 5 minutes door to door, with the exception of when there are major sporting events, concerts or conventions that bring in additional traffic to downtown. I usually walk to work during those occasions to avoid traffic. "

    "It takes about 30 minutes to trace from here everywhere In HOUSTON, but it’s scary at night. Many homeless people and panhandlers in downtown Houston. Many shelters in down town. Police doesn’t enforce anything around this area. For the most streets are clean in the areas where the homeless don’t hang around. The worst is on I-45 right at down town, homeless are in abundance to many to count."
