Radiation sickness is a very painful way to die, and if it doesn't kill you could result in cancer which is an even longer and (possibly) more painful
way to die.
You may very likely be able to travel up wind away from the fallout. It takes a short while to fall but is certainly not
There's also a good chance that if it was a half way smart country that bombed us, they could drop them in such a way that would produce less
Now I don't want anyone to think I relish the idea... I'm just making a point, stating a fact (and that's to the NSA

...but a country could drop nukes clean... and big ones, devastating ones with huge blast perimeters and take out key locations that I won't bother
directly naming because you know what I mean... and then move in without threat of radiation and still have viable agriculture going after they've
bombed the crap out of us.
the big thing is if there is a blast and the cloud starts going up, don't panic and just try to get away from it... preferably up wind. If you get
caught in traffic and it looks like it is not going to move due to permanent blockage, park your car and get out and continue moving away from it. The
chances are very good that if you survived the blast, you will survive the radiation as long as you don't sit and wait in it. It is VERY likely that
if there is a slight wind that it will move the majority downwind and that very little will fall up wind past the blast area. Every step you take
brings you closer to good chances of survival. There are people very close to hiroshima who survived to old age and they had no idea what to do, were
still looking for people they knew in the area.
If there is any way you can keep a vehicle near you, I'd recommend not leaving it... but assess your situation. If you get stuck IN TRAFFIC and it's
not moving and you can see the actual cloud... you need to get away from it however you can and do not plan on returning to that area...especially if
the wind is coming your way, do not sit still but calmly get away from it. It will take a while but it is escapable. Even if you have no way to detect
radiation, if your air is clear and there is still some distance between you and the cloud, don't give up. When you see falling ash... that's a good
sign it's too late.
