    If you played this game like me and got my partner to do all of the driving in the cases and when looking for collectables. Then you will find you still need to drive a lot of miles to reach 194.7 miles driven.

    I have found a good place to idle the mileage, there is a air stip at the top of the map that looks like a cross on the map. Just rubberband your left analog stick to the left, and rubberband your right trigger and then sit back and rack up the mileage.

    GHOST MACHlNEDUDE!!!!!!! I'm actually sitting now at my PC typing this watching the car go around and round!!!!!! This should be the TOP SOLUTION!! BWHAAAAA

    I don't know how 2 people could down vote this solution. Total morons for doing it! I've rubberbanded cheevos a few times years ago, and I just happened to be at the airpark getting a film reel when I literally looked up this cheevo cuz I thought that this would make a great place to get distance.

    THANK YOU!! I did exactly what you did and had the partner drive everywhere + for collectibles, so this is PERFECT!!!

    I suggest you finish this one while you have worked all of your cases. In some points of the game you do the actual driving already so those already count for the total.
    In the White Shoe Slaying you have to drive all of the time because one key clue is a taxi, which is announced over the radio seen driving around. It's a clue you can miss when letting Rusty drive the car and skip the travel.
    Skipping the travel can cause you to repeat the entire case all over as getting and interviewing the cab driver gets you the 5 star case rating!
    You also follow a route for a bus to interview the driver.

    When you finished the game there are several big distances you can drive with your car while looking for:

    *All of the not discovered monuments
    *All of the cars you did not found yet (which can be sometimes a total pain since not all cars pop up all the time at their locations or areas)
    *All of the crime cases (a total of 40, for which you sometimes have to travel fair amounts of mileage (in Vice, there are several crime cases where you travel half the city!)
    In most crime cases you also have to follow the criminals by car, which lets you drive. Again: In this missions no damage is counted in any way possible!
    *All of the movie reels
    *All of the novels
    *All of the gold records
    *All of the shields

    When you drive to all locations yourself you will easily get the distance needed to travel.
    (Which is a reference to the year it takes place in, 1947)

    The logical reason why your partner should drive all the time is the fact you are assured you finish a case with 5 star rating.
    (In the final stretch of the Nicholson Plating case you don't really have to worry about damaging anything, as the final part does not seem to count for damaging any car or hitting any mailbox. I hit several cars and the army cars but no damage was counted. And again: Here you drive the car no matter what escaping the fire and go in pursuit of Mapes )

    If you have any negative vote, please let me know why.
