*Always look right and left before proceeding through a green light.
*When on a one way street, stay to the right to allow for oncoming traffic to pass.
*Never, ever stop for a pedestrian unless he flings himself under the wheels of your car.
*The first parking space you see will be the last parking space you see. Grab it.
*Learn to swerve abruptly. Vancouver is the home of slalom driving, thanks to the Department of Highways, which puts potholes in key locations to test drivers' reflexes and keep them on their toes.
*Never get in the way of a car that needs extensive body work.
*Double-park in downtown Vancouver, unless triple-parking is available.
*Always look both ways when running a red light.
*Honk your horn the instant the light changes.
*Breakdown lanes (shoulders) are not for breaking down, but for speeding, especially during rush hour. Breakdown lanes may also end without warning causing traffic jams as people merge back in.
*Never use directional signals when changing lanes. They only warn other drivers to speed up and not let you in.
*Making eye contact revokes your right of way.
