    I have a campaign going. Daily tweets from me (@kristenritter) to @panynj including #LincolnTunnel. Asking them to FINALLY enforce double lines. Fine bad drivers. Join my campaign and drive change!

    Since all the traffic post-Sandy has us at a standstill, wifi can be picked up near Mega-Bus & Peter Pan. Makes the 2 hour wait a little more tolerable... Just barely

    Always take the bus. I mostly do. One AM I tapped a car in front of me when I was driving to work. No damage but it was a little scary thinking the woman may have wanted to make a big deal of it!

    Sometimes disconcerting if traffic coming toward you. If in left tube, when you get out, stay left to go uptown; right to go downtown. Right tube: stay left to go downtown. right to go uptown.

    The insiders know the best way to NYC is stay off the helix and take the back way through Weehawken. Take the last exit off 495 and follow the bus.

    Hybrid cars pay half the toll if you use EZPASS, and only $2 for carpooling with EZPASS between 7-9am with 3 people ( hybrids are exempt from the minimum # of people)

    While you're sitting in traffic, take a good look at Manhattan Skyline from the helix. The view is beautiful, especially at night. Just don't get too distracted. ;)
