    Drive Carefully!

    Like the Motor City across the way, Windsor is similarly built around car culture. Apart from downtown, shopping revolves around big box stores and some areas don't even have sidewalks! Maneuvering through the streets can be tricky due to a couple of reasons. First, there's a high volume of transport trucks, especially 'round the bridge and tunnel areas. You may find yourself boxed in by semi's during rush hour. Secondly, the drivers are HORRIBLE. People constantly run yellow and red lights, so watch out!

    Windsor Park

    Seems like you could use whatever you needed to use to get around. I don't think a motor home would fit in the parking garage. But there's a lot of parking on the streets in the winter nights before 7pm we noticed

    Highway 401

    Windsor is the western terminus of both Highway 401, Canada's busiest highway, and of VIA Rail's Quebec City-Windsor Corridor.

    Windsor has completed a municipal highway, E.C. Row Expressway, running from east-west through the city. Consisting of 15.7 kilometres (10 mi) of highway and nine interchanges, the expressway is the fastest way for commuters to travel across the city.

    E.C. Row Expressway is actually in the Guinness Book of Records as the shortest freeway that took the longest time to build. It is only 16 km (11 miles) long but took more than 15 years to complete, hence the popular local saying "it's 16 kilometers long, took 16 years to build, and fell apart in 16 seconds".

    The expressway stretches from Windsor's far west end at Ojibway Parkway east to Banwell Road on the city's border with Tecumseh.
