Check Out This 1991 CBS 48 Hours Special on Driving in New York City

Our friends at Gothamist recently dug up this great clip of a 1991 48 Hours episode that was all about driving in New York City.

In 1991, the TV news show 48 Hours dedicated about twenty minutes to the perils of driving in NYC: from getting towed, to getting a license to drive a taxi, to driving the taxi, to maneuvering the streets as an ambulance driver. And as one man puts it, there are a lot of obstacles in the streets: "You've got vans cutting in front of you, you've got New Jersey drivers, kamikaze pedestrians jumping out like rabbits all over the place... bikers zooming by, you gotta watch these bikers."
