I would contact the Miramar police for crime stats in that area or google "police blotter" for that zip code. Or, there are some websites that will give you that info...try "great neighborhoods", etc.
Sense of safety is one of those trigger issues that is based on one's background. What might feel safe to one person, might not, to another. Stats will give you a truer picture.
I'm a mother, too. I am extremely cautious w my kids, but then, they go around partying at 4am, in bad neighborhoods, while they're away at college...so we can't control everything.
Let me know if I can be of further service.
