Transportation and logistics experts said Tuesday that the safest cities to visit are New York City, Chicago and Los Angeles.
They said that when you consider the fact that they have less congestion and have the best access to services, those cities were also among the safest.
“When you consider where people travel and the number of trips that people make, New York is the safest city,” said John Molinelli, a professor at Cornell University’s department of urban studies.
“If you look at the congestion and the traffic congestion, that’s probably the safest.”
Molinelli said that New York has the most accessible streets, and that Chicago and L.A. have the least.
“Chicago has more of the traffic than Los Angeles,” he said.
“New York is pretty much a city that’s kind of built to support a lot of things, and then people go to other places.”
Moltke, the transportation professor, said that most Americans who travel to these cities live in major metropolitan areas, and many people don’t think about that when they decide which city to go to.
“It’s the biggest factor,” he added.
“If you’re driving to New York, you’re going to want to go downtown, and you’re likely going to drive to Manhattan.
If you’re just going to visit one or two cities, then you might want to just go back to your home city.”
Molteni said that there are a lot more reasons why people choose to visit these cities.
“They’re great places to go on vacation,” he told ABC News.
“They’re home to a lot and they’re nice places to live.
They’re great for tourists.”
Molinci said that the biggest misconception is that you need to get into a big city to be safe.
“A lot of people are kind of saying, ‘Well, you need a car to get around,'” he said, “but if you get a bus, you can just drive to your hotel.”MOLTKE: New York ‘s safest city for travelers, even though traffic is worse than other big cities.
“In New York there are many buses that go from the city center to the suburbs.
There are a ton of people going through New York that are not going to be going to their destination,” he explained.”
But you still have the big cities that are safe to go into, because there are so many bus routes that go through the city that aren’t going to hit a major area.”
Moli, the professor, agreed.
He said that it is important to remember that traffic can be very, very unpredictable.
“The way that people drive is unpredictable, and they may have a plan for their trip,” he observed.
“So they can change their plan and go somewhere else, but they may not realize it until it’s too late.”
Molelli said it is crucial to understand that New Yorkers have a choice about whether they want to drive or not.
“You want to be on the bus and get out of the city, because it’s so nice and the quality of life is so good,” he continued.
“But the other option is to go back home, and to have to drive and to get to your destination.”
Molina said that he does not have a specific answer for how many cars New Yorkers should buy, but he said that they should not get one if they have the time.
“We have to make the choice that we want to do it,” he stressed.
“That’s the choice we have to have,” Moltke added.
“To me, that is one of the best choices.”
Molson agreed that people should take the time to plan their trip.
“I do think you should do it, but you have to understand the risks and the cost,” he noted.
“Do you want to get stuck in traffic?” he continued, “or do you want people to go somewhere where there are less cars?”
Moltik also pointed out that there is also a cost to being a car driver.
“Driving is really expensive,” he commented.
“It costs a lot to get out on the street.”
“So, you have a responsibility to yourself,” Molinello added.
Moltk said that for most people, a car is a necessity.
“One of the things that you see with the car, the other side is the safety of the driver,” he pointed out.
“There are many drivers who are very well paid,” he concluded.
Moltke agreed, adding that even though he is a driver himself, he is willing to take on a new role.
“My dream is to work on something else,” he suggested.
