Traffic, traffic and more traffic. This is the one thing that likely comes to mind when you’re thinking about navigating the roads of Chicago. Driving anywhere in Chicago in your pre-owned car from Burbank can seem like it takes forever. If you’re new in town or if you’ve lived here your whole life, here are some helpful tips that will make your experience on the roads a bit more enjoyable.


Factor in Ball Games

If you’re driving on the day of a baseball game and need to drive near either stadium, factor in some extra time to get to your destination. Not only will there be heavy car traffic, there will be heavy foot traffic as well. Drive slowly through these areas to ensure everyone stays safe. You can also choose an alternate route that avoids these high-traffic areas.


Watch for Pedestrians

Especially with the weather warming up, more and more people are going to be walking, running and biking outside. The suburbs don’t have a ton of pedestrian activity compared to downtown, so make sure you take caution as you get closer to the city. Pedestrians also often have headphones in or don’t follow the rules of the road so always be cautious when you’re driving.


Airport Travel

Traveling to or from either airport located in Chicago can be stressful, especially when you’re in a time crunch. Factor in extra time so you don’t miss your flight!
