    If driving over the bridge makes you nervous, you aren't alone. There are services that will drive you and your vehicle across.

    Stay to the right so you don't end up driving with two-way traffic. They set up two-way traffic when there's a lot of congestion and it's terrifying.

    The state should be embarrassed that there is no regular, all-day transit service on this corridor. Especially during the summer.

    Traffic. Check the reports before getting stuck in traffic. If you do get stuck, you will have fabulous views of Chesapeake Bay. Better hope there are no accidents either. Big backups.

    Don't look down and if you're a car driving on the two-lane side at night, don't be an ass and do keep your eyes on the road.

    Your not suppose to change lanes on the bridge...that's how accidents happen. Stay in your lane and follow the overhead traffic control signals.

    If you suffer from gephyrophobia (anxiety disorder brought about by the fear of bridges) then this bridge is definitely not for you. 186-foot drop to the Chesapeake Bay at highest point. Look ahead!

    If you have an EZ pass it makes it a lot easier to cross and maneuver through traffic. . .

    If you're heading East, and you don't want to travel on the left bridge with 2 way traffic, stay to the RIGHT till booths!

    Don't try to cross this bridge Eastbound on Friday May thru September; Westbound on Sundays. The Maryland Eastern Shore bridge traffic backs up 8-10 miles because of the beach.

    Try to avoid the lane that opposes traffic flow although doing so provides an "on edge" experience.. pun intended

    As others have indicated, please don't stop and/or take your eyes from the road to look at the bay. If you really want to look at the water and boats, plan a stop at Sandy Point.

    The original span opened in 1952 and at the time, with a length of 4.3 miles (7 km), was the world's longest continuous over-water steel structure.
