The overall crime rate in South Mills is one of the lowest in the US. This makes it one of the safer places to live in the country in terms of crime.

It is a fairly quiet town because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) South Mills has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. South Mills has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in South Mills than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here.

In South Mills, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 33.00 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average.

South Mills is very much a car-oriented town. This is because the population of South Mills isn't large enough or dense enough to support an extensive public transit system. It has a lot of rural roads, and the distance between houses can be quite large, which together tends to discourage walking and bicycling to work. 100.00% of residents commute to work in their own car (and the drive is typically to a job out of town). People also tend to drive out of town for other services as well, such as shopping, doctors appointments, and more.

South Mills is a small town, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
