Living with kids on a busy street

We’re house shopping (ugh) to get closer to good schools mostly, but also just to light a bunch of our money on fire.

Some of the houses we’re looking at are right off of streets with a speed limit of 45mph. Not much traffic, but not somewhere I’d want the kids walking along.


Do any of you have experience yourself or for your kids living off of a busy street? Did it feel too confining or dangerous? Did you simply hop in the car to go on walks or bike rides? Is it just something you get used to, or would it drive us crazy?
