Driving In The City

If you work in the city then you know what a hassle commutes can be. Between rush hour, busses, and construction areas, it’s easy to forget how to enjoy urban spectacles you probably pass by on a daily basis. Here are a couple tips on how to enjoy your ride when going downtown.

Give yourself a head start. You probably already know when peak hours of traffic occur—morning commutes to work, lunch runs, and everyone’s favorite, the ride back home—so do yourself a favor and avoid rush hour! Commuting half an hour earlier (or even later) can probably save you some headaches. 

Earlier commutes not only give you the advantage of avoiding traffic but also will give you the opportunity to enjoy empty roads. Without all the hustle and bustle, you’ll be amazed as to what you’ll discover what was in front of you the entire time.

However, those who are unable to change their schedule (people do have other obligations) then consider other options to make city driving more enjoyable. Learn ‘secret’ fast routes around the city to get where you need to go. Cities are notorious for street parking so do yourself a favor (as well as save time and money) by learning how to parallel park.

Driving in the city can be slow and frustrating at times, but with a few simple tips it can be the urban oasis you always knew you liked.
