Located in southern New Jersey, just off the Pennsylvania border, Camden is home to around 80,000 residents. Camden has received a great deal of media attention due to their struggles with crime and corruption in local government. In fact, three mayors of Camden have been jailed for offenses since the city was founded. Camden is well known for having one of the highest crime rates in the United States. In fact, based on violent crimes, it was ranked as the most dangerous city in the country in three years from 2000 to 2010.
In 2009, Camden hosted around 2,300 violent crimes for every hundred thousand resident – 2,000 above the national average. Unfortunately, this means that most business for auto transport companies like Budget Auto Shipping is traveling out of Camden where 2 out of every 5 residents are below the poverty line and a third of all high school students do not graduate.
Most access to the Camden city area is from the West, or Philadelphia and from the southwest using Interstate 295. Access from the South is quite rare but can be achieved through the use of Routes 42 and 55. Finally, from the North, Interstate 95 runs from the larger cities of Newark and New York City.
