Driving in the city can be stressful at the best of times and even more so if you’re not used to the hustle and bustle of the roads. For our latest post, we discuss our top tips for getting around the city, helping you have a stress- free journey.
When you’re driving around the city, you might be tempted to switch lanes to get to your destination quicker. However, switching lanes will only shave off a few seconds of your travel time, and can greatly increase your risk of a collision, not to mention heighten your stress levels. When driving in the city, it’s often easier to pick and lane and stick to it.
It pays dividends to check your route ahead of time. Those that live in the city will know which roads to avoid and which are best to use at certain times of the day. However, if you’re not familiar with the route you are driving, it is certainly best to check before you travel.
When driving in the city, it may help to consider the size of your vehicle. If you’re transporting large loads, you may have no choice but to drive a large vehicle, but this is where it comes in handy to know your best route. Remember, that you are likely to need to parallel park in the city and will almost always need to pay for your space, so make sure you have your card with your or some spare change.
When driving any vehicle, you need to remain vigilant, however, when driving a van, you’ll be taking up a lot more of the road when you turn so you’ll need to ensure you remain extra cautious of cyclists and motorbikes.
