Driving in Cities

Driving in cities can be very daunting if you are not used to it, but most of us will have to drive in a city at some time.

Depending on which city you are driving in, there may be many more cyclists than you are used to seeing, as due to the amount of traffic, many citizens of cities find that bicycles are a quicker way to get around. Do keep a careful eye out for cyclists as they may not obey all of the rules of the road, and if the street has a bicycle lane, make sure you do not drive in it.

Another major issue in large cities can be taxis as they can swerve all over the road if someone hails them. You should always try and keep your distance from taxis because as well as swerving in front of you, they often stop suddenly. You should also watch out for passengers suddenly opening a taxicab door in front of you.
