Driving around New Orleans is always a unique experience. While you can enjoy the architecture and scenery of the Crescent City, you also must watch out for tourists and out-of-town drivers. As you probably know, commercial vehicles are everywhere in the city.
You probably seldom have second thoughts about using a parking lot or a downtown parking garage. Every day, perhaps several times a day, you enter a parking lot. After you conclude your visit, you back out safely and drive home.
