i'm moving back to new york city on thursday. i've taken the drive before and have never left as planned, but this time i'm making sure i do. i'll be taking all of 95 (from north carolina). drive is between 8-10 hours. i'm thinking of leaving @ 7am or 7pm.

so, should i drive in the am or pm?

am, just try to be out of major cities during rush hour. Driving at night is always more dangerous, even if your awake it doesn't mean the next guy is. Plus its easier on you physically to drive during the day.

Also, there are more places open in case of emergencies, and the scenery is always nice.

i always try to make big drives late at night if possibly. i hate traffic, I like driving down a highway at night for some reason too

don't take 95 through dc/baltimore during peek hours.. i'd recommend heading through there late at night.

I'd say PM to avoid traffic. But please please make sure you are totally awake the whole time. I just had a friend of mine die because he fell asleep at the wheel for a split second.
