Drive slowly and allow plenty of room between you and the car in front.

Once you’ve stopped at a red light, wait a few moments before you set off again on the green light, some vehicles tend to drive through red signal lights.

There are a number of affordable garages located throughout downtown Baltimore, on a weekend you can even find free parking if you’re lucky.
