"Driving tips" Transportation Options / Issues Tip by AngelRed

?Go around anything in your way. Buses, stopped cars, anything. If you sit and wait for it, it might never move and the drivers behind you will all get irate.
?If you're making a left turn from a single lane road, pull up into the intersection so that everyone else can go around you.
?Don't pull into the crosswalk at the red light! Those pedestrians are more than willing to punch your car in protest.
?Not all of the lights have a delay between one intersection turning red and the other green, so don't assume you have time to run that light before the traffic comes through.
?Yes, the pedestrians have signals for when they can't walk. No, they don't care.
?There are bicycles. Everywhere. Poof! There's another, out of nowhere! Watch for them.
?The speed limit is 25 in most areas, but you probably won't have a chance to go that fast anyway.
