San Francisco’s major freeways include the 101 and 280. Both roadways connect in the heart of the city. In San Francisco, you must remember not turn right on a red light. Additionally, many intersections do not permit left turns, so you may need to make a number of right turns and go around the block to get to your destination.
You can expect your flight from Shanghai Pudong International Airport (PVG) to San Francisco to last around eleven hours. Due to the natural topography of San Francisco, you may find yourself parking on a hill. If your car is parked uphill, be sure to turn the vehicle’s wheels away from the curb. When you’re parking downhill, point them towards the curb, and use the car’s parking brake. Also, if you wind up driving in the famous San Francisco fog, then reduce your speed and use caution.
