6. Major Highways and Roads
If you will be attempting to travel any long distances, it is much better to stick to smaller back-roads than joining the mobs of people that will undoubtedly use major highways and roads in their quest to get out of town.
Once again, major highways are hub between major cities. The initial flood of traffic onto these roads will be the equivalent of a nationwide hurricane evacuation. These roads will be littered with overheating vehicles, people who ran out of gas, and the people seeking to take advantage of them.
Rural routes will not only be less congested but they could also help you steer clear of a roadside ambush.
