Tips for City Driving
Pittsburgh is right next to our dealership, which is a great spot for people to take advantage of the vibrant night life and multitudes of great restaurants and shops. Before you go, though, here are some tips for city driving.
- Get a small car: Narrow streets, heavy traffic, and street parking make big cars a hassle in urban environments.
- Consider an automatic: Manuals are tough to drive in stop-and-go traffic.
- Take fuel economy into account: That city mpg estimate isn’t there for nothing. City gas stations can be expensive, too.
- Parking assist technology: All 2017 Chevys have features like park assist and lane departure warning tech, which are valuable on tough city streets.
- Accelerate slowly: Speeding up quickly only to slow down again is hard on your gas tank.
- Stay in your lane: Changing lanes a lot increases your risk of collisions.
- Replace the air filter: City air filled with smog makes for a dirtier air filter.
- Be wary of break-ins: Keep your valuables out of sight and your car locked.
- Drive cautiously and be aware: City natives know which roads to avoid; newcomers don’t. Drive slowly in the right-hand lane and watch for signs.
- Use navigation aids: Using a GPS or integrated navigation is crucial when exploring the city.
Driving in the city is easy as long as you follow these ten simple tips.
