Streets abound with traffic
The main street being Metcalf runs through the middle of the city for about 12 miles; the length of the city limits. It is loaded with retail, and many lanes of traffic. Overall, though, the vehicle traffic moves along pretty fast, given the volume; and it is spread out.
Metcalf runs north/south, and in the middle of the city runs I 435 which is the main thoroughfare of the ring road going around the city. So, overall it is convenient and close by to get on main arteries to get around.

A view south from the King G ranch. Hayward's is at the top of that hill.
Nice way to travel
We rented a vehicle at the Kansas City International Airport from Thrifty Car Rental and got a great deal on a mid-size car.
