Default weeds in driveway

Can anyone tell me how to get rid of the little weeds here and there that are coming up in the cracks on my driveway? Thanks, sorry I'm no good with this type of stuff.

Plant stores often sell a stronger viniger that can kill a lot of weeds

Look for a Total Vegatation Killer, not Round Up.
It's important to try and blow out any loose dirt you can before apply the killer so the weeds do not have soil to just come back and start growing again.
Using something like vinager and table salt will kill the weeds for a while but you would have to keep going back and doing it all over again. A total vegatation killer should last for about 12 months.
