I've decided there are four tricks to successful driving in the windy city...
- Painted lines on the road mean nothing; they are really just a guide.
- Understand that cab drivers are on suicide missions, and don't care if they hurt you or their already banged up yellow death machines.
- City bus drivers are apparently the 2nd or 3rd highest paid in the country, regardless, they act disgruntled and don't care about you. Know that they will take up a lane and a half, and if they are driving a double decker, count on two.
- Tourists, both driving and walking, are apparently overcome by the sights and sounds of it all, so they'll stop on green and walk/drive on red. Watch out!
