City Driving

One of the biggest problems with city streets is

One of the biggest problems with city streets is the amount of traffic on them. You will want to watch out for what the other drivers are doing and pay attention to traffic signals.

Here are ways to increase your safety in city driving:

• Know the best way to get to where you are going. Get a city map and plan your trip into an unknown part of the city just as you would for a cross-country trip.
• Try to use the freeways that rim and crisscross most large cities. You will save time and energy. See Freeway Driving on page 320.
• Treat a green light as a warning signal.

A traffic light is there because the corner is busy enough to need it. When a light turns green, and just before you start to move, check both ways for vehicles that have not cleared the intersection or may be running the red light.
