Commute Safely

This period of the year in NYC is a busy one, with many people visiting for the holidays and other events. The best NYC commuting option may be using the subway and walking. Klein Lawyers state that many car accidents are a result of distracted driving, drunk driving, bad weather conditions, reckless or aggressive driving, and speeding, among other causes. You can expect most of these conditions to be taking place in New York City roadways. Although it is a festive time, it can also be a dangerous time with everyone rushing to get to their destinations. To avoid accidents and save money, skipping cabs and hopping on the subway might be your safest bet. This gives you the opportunity to see the beautiful attractions strategically located around the city and get to know beautiful NYC from a resident’s perspective.
