5 Tips for Driving in Chicago
Although driving in Chicago – the third-largest city in the country – is much easier than its big-city counterparts of New York and Los Angeles, it’s always helpful to know what to watch out for. Check out these tips for driving in the Windy City:
- Be careful of bikers in and out of bike lanes. Cyclists will weave through standing traffic. When parking, always look both ways before opening the car door.
- Watch out for potholes, which can reach up to 10 inches deep in some parts of the city. Needless to say, these mini craters can damage cars.
- Slow down for speed humps. Speed humps are scattered around the city, and not only in residential neighborhoods. Though they’re mostly kept to smaller side streets, they have even been placed in busy areas like downtown on streets near Michigan Avenue.
- Stay off your phone. In the state of Illinois, it’s illegal to text or talk on a cell phone without the use of a hands-free device.
- Pay parking meters exactly on time. Even people who show up a minute late to add to the meter find tickets on their windshield. Feed the meter before your time expires.
