Yup, sometimes I like to feel the city closer smile.gif

However the traffic lights are retarded...

Yes, I do. It's a great way to take in every little detail of LC. It's the main thing I do in IV nowadays. I play it just to cruise around.

I do sometimes. I always rush through the missions so then I take my time driving, looking around etc.

I had to say sometimes, since there wasnt the more specific option of "only when cops are around" lol.gif Well w/out "never wanted" they dont take too kindly to you smashing into cars and peds w/ a 45k lb *hummer* tounge.gif

Sometimes, I do. Until the stupid drivers of LC piss me off with ramming my car while I am stopped on a traffic light. Then I go crazy, make Niko take the RPG outta his pants and blast some cars!

It's my favourite thing to do in IV. As others have said though the traffic lights and AI of other drivers is piss poor, I really hope these are improved in V.

I sometimes do it with a bus or even a phantom, but when that light goes red, AGGGHHHHH!!!! The damn liberty city drivers try to overtake you as well as crash into your vehicle, and the traffic light system made no sense at times.

Yes, but only during realistic playthroughs. Although if I can find an excuse for sometimes not obeying the laws (like "Com here here fast!"), I do.

Second that. There's only so many times you can replay the missions.. What I do now is try and get 100% completion, but I do it as if I were a regular citizen. It's opened up new parts of LC and actually made me admire Rockstar's craftmanship a lot more.

Sometimes, though the AI pisses me off when you're at red light since they seem to try and drive around you or smash into your bumper after 3 seconds.

Yes and no. At times I try to drive casually when I'm driving to point A to B but I mainly just stick to a decent speed and stay on the right. I would probably attempt to stop at read lights if it would register to peds and they wouldn't try ramming into my car trying to get around me.

When I have a wanted level definitely not.

Sometimes I do. Like if I know I'm going to end up in a chase with someone like the first mission for Brucie I will so that way when the change happens my car is in perfect condition but other times if I'm just going from point A to point B i won't lol

Every once in a while I like to.. roleplay, and pick up a freind, or girlfreind and casually drive to someplace, Ive even goten cabs home before when drunk pf tounge.gif But I have the same problem as everyone else. Stop at the lights, the car behind tries to drive around me, and occasinaly bumps into the back of me while trying to do so, or slides down the side of me.

Tho I doubt ANYBODY, drives carefully on GTA all the time, its GTA, do what you want but nobody does one thign al lthe time.....

Apart from people who are - 13 and under, they start the game, run outside, shoot everyone till the cops arive, shoot them, eventully die, respawn, rince and repeatet for the next 5 years.

I do often but there seems to be too many traffic lights and not enough traffic for it to necessary. if you catch someone about to run into the back of you, inch forward abit.its annoying but it works

Sometimes, but I find that other cars' AI doesn't exactly help me, when they're busy trhing to run me off the road for stopping at a red light. Also no matter what I have to speed on the highway.

Most of the time yeah.
I got used to it and i drive carefully everytime, i don't even think about it, it became the way i play.

Even online in free mode, i like to cruise around, doing nothing special.

I be out eating lights I always try to never crash sometimes I get to last long. The driving on GTAIV is pretty fun I love putting it on to visit the bar or restaurant with a follower.


It would be very cool if it was like driver back in the old days where if you eat a red light you will get pulled over by the police and get a ticket.

Sometimes I like to do that, but it's not something I would ever want to have to do in game.

Sometimes I do. It's actually fun to roleplay sometimes and obey traffic laws. I've been doing this since GTAIII (can't remember that I ever obeyed traffic laws in the first 2 games).

In IV tho, it's a little frustrating that if you stop at a red light, the drivers behind you will become impatient assholes and damage your car most of the time :sui: I just tap the accelerate key (without actually moving forward) to prevent this from happening. Hopefully this won't happen in V!!!

I also always pay the toll unless I have a wanted level :)

Also, in every GTA since III, some traffic lights were not placed correctly. So I will stop at a red light, but it's actually supposed to be green... It just gets confusing lol

It was part of what made Midnight Club LA such an awful game (in my opinion).


I follow some rules. Mostly just stuff like staying in the right lanes and paying tolls. f*ck if I'm gonna follow speed limits and stop for right turns though.

Usually when I'm driving a nice car during night in Star Junction I feel like obeying the traffic laws :r*:

Only when I am just driving around with nothing to do.  I love listening to the VIBE laid back.  The city has so much detail that you miss when speeding down the highway from the cops.


I like taking my time at night.  The moon always looks creepy. The city lights look great when crossing the Algonquin Bridge.
