The only problem is the highways you're most likely to deal with are those right around the city, which are some of the worst to drive on in the country (in my experience). Once you do a long-distance roadtrip away from the cross-Bronx expressway you'll learn to combine speed with the reaction times you acquired driving in Manhattan.

Then there's the kids. I can't even begin to imagine what


Well that was weird:

Then there's the kids. I can't even begin to imagine what it is going to be like to learn New York highway driving with two toddlers. Maybe the distraction will keep you on your toes like half-naked homeless people do in town.

Victoria - the Hellion (a.k.a.Alex's Sister)

True, true - I was 37 and needed the license so I could get a divorce while camping out in the burbs.... THAT was messy! Although my kids are no longer toddlers, they are still good for a distraction or three! I'll keep my eyes out for you Alex - but I am likely the one passing you in the fast lane.... I LOVE to go fast!!! BTW - do you remember the toast I gave at your wedding???


I do hope you get to feel more comfortable with driving on the highways, Alex. I feel like highways are a real break from the normal stress of driving, although I do understand it depends on how many other cars there are to deal with.

Recently I was in St. Louis on holiday (never been there before) and got into a bit of an accident, nothing major. I don't normally get into accidents at all and I think part of the problem was I'd decided to follow some friends in another car since I didn't know where we were going. One thing I can share is please don't come out of an alleyway onto another NON-one way street with parked cars on either side. There is no way to win in that situation.
