Getting used to driving in a city as large and as busy as New York can be a challenge for even the most experienced drivers. From locating a safe parking garage to keeping an eye out for pedestrians, there are plenty of tasks that a newcomer to NYC has to keep in mind when behind the wheel. Here are some helpful tips that will make driving in the city a bit easier:
Always Check Your Blind Spots
From cyclists to children, you never know who or what may be hiding in your blind spot. In order to avoid a collision, be sure to take a look in your rear-view mirror as well as your side mirrors whenever you back out from a spot in a parking garage. When making a right-turn, be especially cautious of any pedestrians walking behind your car that may be located in the blind spot.
Don't Psyche Yourself Out
One of the most important lessons you can learn as a driver in NYC is to be patient and not become easily agitated. Although cars around you may be honking and cabbies may be cutting off numerous lanes of traffic to pick up a client, maintain your cool so that you can make rational decisions on the road.
Observe and Respect the Bike Lane
Many streets in NYC have created a separate lane for cyclists in order to ensure their safety on the road. Be careful not to get too close to this lane while you drive and be sure to check for any cyclists when making turns that cross the bike lane.
One final way to make driving easier and more relaxing in NYC is to locate a safe and affordable parking garage in your neighborhood. Here at Champion Parking, we offer the latest technology to keep your car safe as well as friendly personnel who can help you around the clock with your parking needs.
