City Driving

City Driving
One of the biggest problems with city streets is the
amount of traffic on them. You’ll 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:
D 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.
D Try to use the freeways that rim and crisscross 
most large cities. You’ll save time and energy. 
See the next part, “Freeway Driving.”
D 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.
