Took 17yo DS driving on the freeway for the 1st time today! I don't know who was more nervous between the 2 of us! LOL But he did really good his 1st time! Next weekend we are going to tackle the major freeway here- if you know anything about Ohio you know 270 (aka the Outerbelt)! That is what he is going to drive next Saturday!

270 is better than 71. :)  Good luck!

I think the first time I drove 270 it was after I got my license by myself

I tell my kids that freeway driving is the easist.  Everyone is headed the same way, no driveways, kids popping out between parked cars, etc....   Yes, it faster, often more conjested (we live in Chicago-land) but still nicer than most major roads.

Are you IN Columbus?? If so do you know when they will be changing the speed limit from 65 to 70?? DS is concerned about that even though he did awesome!

And I agree- definitely easier than 71! I shudder to think of driving that myself! Especially in the dowtown area!

I grew up around Columbus but moved away over 20 years ago. I still have family in the area but haven't heard anything about the speed limit changing.
