Driving in Milwaukee: what you need to know

If you’re not familiar with city driving, the stop and go culture can be pretty frustrating and will use up a lot of gas. In order to keep fuel costs down, try not to accelerate unnecessarily. For example when driving in start and stop traffic lightly accelerate; this will be better on your gas tank. Also, urban gas stations are expensive and difficult to locate so when you find a fairly priced gas station be sure to fill the tank right up.

Before you start your journey research the route and make sure you’re familiar with the exits and turnings you need to make. This will make your journey easier and less stressful. In multiple lanes of traffic, stay in the right lane so you can read the signs easier and you’re also less likely to miss your exit.
