Here are two worthwhile driving tips for you:
1. If you\’re driving through lower Manhattan (or, for that matter, just about anywhere in Manhattan) never get behind anyone with out of town plates, because it is an excellent bet they have no idea how to deal with it, and will wind up exasperating you.
2. If you\’re driving anywhere – Manhattan, the suburbs, small-town America or even the frigging desert where there are no other cars for miles – never get behind a van with stick figures of mommy, daddy, the kids and the dog or cat. No matter how freely traffic should be moving it will hold you up – and probably exasperate you even more than the out-of-towner in Manhattan.
Believe me, you have just read some very good advice.
