Road Regulations by Country Arguably, the best source of information on traffic rules for a country is that country's Ministry of Transportation. It makes sense for someone organising a road trip to contact the relevant authorities in the country they wish to drive into, to get the most up to date information available. In principle, international road and ...

I am not sure if there is a global option. But for the United Kingdom, the go-to document on rules of the road (including signage) is the Highway Code, handily (if a little clunkily) available online. It is perhaps important to be aware that the Highway Code is a guidance document, not the law itself, although for most purposes it comes close enough. It's a ...

Don't bother taking your car to the US. It will cost you shipping and insurance. You'll have to pay an import tax, and certification fees, get the title properly notarized; get the car approved and inspected to finally get the license plates - that's if the car is allowed in the country in the first place. You'll have to get it insured (which will be ...

Gazole and Diesel are synonyms - end of story. Regarding the confusion over brand names like "diesel blah" (supra! ultra! etc), for example Totale has "Total Excellium" ! http://www.total.fr/mes-deplacements/tout-savoir-sur-les-carburants-total.html which is nothing more than a registered product name (like "Big Mac" or "Toyota Corolla"). BP has ...

I am not living India though but it is not only problem of India but i think it is very common problem in other developing Asian countries like Pakistan, SriLanka , Bangladesh and others. There are many rules to stop those horns to play but the big problem of these countries is not implementing them. So need of the day is to make it necessary to not disturb ...

I haven't been to Indian but the thought of driving in their streets and hearing those horns would be really annoying. Imagine 99% of the time they use the horn?! Seriously?! I don't how to prevent this or even resolve this but I found this post that you might want to read about a reason Why Indians Love Honking Horns.

I feel you are worried about the difficulty and quality of the roads, so I'll address that. The main roads are well maintained asphalt and it is easy to drive to the most popular spots like Golden Circle, Vik or glacier lagoon. There are many gravel side roads and in some of the areas they are the only option (West/East Fjords, including parts of the Ring ...

When I was stationed over there in the early 2000's, you could buy a map from Esso that had all their other stations located on the map. If you're looking for a non-tech solution to make sure you can get fuel, this is one option.

When I traveled to Germany a few years ago (US citizen) I realized that my cell phone plan wouldn't have data service over there, and as such, Google maps would be useless. I looked around for a GPS app that allowed you to pre-load maps, and eventually decided on CoPilot GPS (I have no association with the app, just a satisfied user.) You do need to pay for ...

http://maps.adac.de/ has this feature. The page appears to be German only, but it shouldn't be too difficult to use. The first input box on the left is your starting point, the one below it your destination. Then click on "Weitere auswählen (0/38)" and check the box next to "Tankstellen & Spritpreise". Next click "Weiter" and or "Route berechnen" and ...

You can certainly rent from private parties their Relay Rides is the site that allows you to do exactly that. Insurance is something else entirely. Normally insurers in the US want to cover the driver long term 6+ months. I have been in a situation like this looking for a short term insurance for someone and I've not had much luck. Relay Rides doesn't ...

There's free parking along the Niagara Parkway which can get you close to the the Falls, but it's a long street so that can vary as well but it's the closest you can get. Your other options are the areas outside the central Falls and Park that also have free parking. White Water Walk, Whirlpool Aero Car, Queenston Heights Park/Restaurant, Old Fort Erie, ...

Have a look at Travels with Charley - may actually be useful and if not, you will be captivated anyway if you have not met it. A 10,000 mile US road trip by one man and a 10 year old French Poodle. When the 'one man' happens to be the awesome great John Steinbeck 'it's all on'. I started this more as a humorous comment, but Steinbeck probably has some ...

If you arrive early enough you can park at the visitor center. But it is often full before 10 am. So, if it is full, you'll have to backtrack into town: The National Park Service has a map of park & ride areas in Springdale which you may be able to use. Some of these are standalone park and ride facilities; others are sections of hotel or local business ...

The rules depend on the specific place you want to park and are always posted there. The city districts are in charge of parking so the specifics differ from district to district. At the moment mostly only to park in the dark red zones of the map below you need a parking ticket (source). Of course the districts need some rules after which they model ...

Owning a dashcam is legal in Germany. Operating a dashcam the way most are designed is highly problematic although prosecution may not be likely. The applicable rule is a general one that theoretically allows fines up to € 300,000. source (I guess this just means that in the worst case you may be charged close to € 1000, although even that would probably be ...
