Car Rental, Driving and Parking in Phoenix
Those looking to hire a car at Phoenix Airport and drive around this part of Arizona will immediately notice that the locals like to drive fast and often ignore speed limits. The rush hour here is busy, although less hectic than most large cities and traffic has generally eased by 10:00, being busy again from 15:00 to as late at 19:00 The I-10 interstate can become particularly busy at these times and it is sensible to take an alternative route during peak hours. Drivers in Phoenix can be aggressive, although not as bad as major Californian cities.
The surface streets in the city center are clearly marked, which makes getting around simple. Plenty of parking lots and garages are available all over the city, including a number next to the Bank One Ballpark, the Arizona Science Center, the Civic Plaza, St. Mary's Basilica, the Historic City Hall, Phoenix City Hall, the Municipal Court Building and the Orpheum Theater.
