One way streets - Hamilton is famous for its myriad of one way streets in the downtown core. For those not familiar with driving downtown you might want to use GPS to help you navigate the one way streets.
Hamilton Mountain Access - There are many accesses up and down the Hamilton escaprment, often referred to as "The Mountain". These steep inclines can often ice up or collect water from the banks of the escarpment. Use extra caution while driving down these in poor weather conditions.
