It Is Hard to Get Used to Driving in Seattle
Driving in Seattle can be difficult because of the rush-hour traffic, downtown streets that are only one way, difficult-to-navigate hills, and unexpected toll highways. The city’s geography, which includes hills, lakes, and a Puget Sound boundary, presents particular driving difficulties. You have some serious navigational difficulties when you factor in rush hour traffic, as well as unique complications including buses, pedestrians, and bike riders.
When moving to Seattle know that the rush hours start at 6 am and extend up until 9 am. Also, evening rush hours are between 5 and 6, but they can extend up until 7. Furthermore, there are a lot of bicyclists that are not required to use bike lanes, so avoiding them on the road will become your daily occurrence.
