Provided there were no other sign or rule forbidding it, turning was perfectly fine. The red X cross on blue background means it's forbidden to stop (absolutes Halteverbot). It's somewhat similar to the more well-known “no parking” sign, but stricter (parking is defined as leaving your vehicle or letting it stand longer than three minutes whereas this signs ...

Red circle means Prohibition, round signal means law-enforced (as per driving code and rules), upper left to lower right red bar means prohibition to park your vehicle (2 or more minutes and stopped engine supposes your car is parked) and upper left to lower right with a 'mirrored' lower left to upper right red bar means prohibition to park or pulling over ...

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 have lived in NJ (currently living in NYC) for several years and I can confirm that it's not legal to pump your own gas. Pull your car at the gas station and someone will attend to you.

This appears to be an item in the current news. From the Courier-Post about a month ago: TRENTON — New Jersey lawmakers are reigniting a debate about self-service gas just in time for drivers to fuel up as they return from their Memorial Day weekends. New Jersey and Oregon are the only two states in the country that ban drivers from pumping their ...

There are a couple of things you should do. Driving license An International driving licensed is not required, when your driving license is in a language that the police can read. They have to verify that you license is up to date an valid. So, when your driving license is in German, French, Italian, or English, you should be fine, and probably there are ...

Tipping a filling station attendant is not generally expected in the United States or Canada. Some guides flatly deny it is ever expected, though others acknowledge there is disagreement on the matter. Anecdotally, in all the times I've been in Oregon and New Jersey, I have never seen or heard of anyone tipping the attendant simply for pumping gas, except ...

As mentioned in this official webpage, the list of mandatory accessory in a car in France is : a reflecting jacket a security triangle a breathalyser Nevertheless, it is also explicitly mentioned that the lack of a breathalyser isn't submitted to a penalty. You are therefore actually not required to have one in your car. You can be submitted to an ...

This site is arguably the most up-to-date source of information on the Czech motorway network and its regulations. To date it only mentions police checks. Never does it talk about automatic checks. Indeed the motorway vignette is a 2-part sticker. One part is to be stuck to the windshield, whilst the other is to be kept as a proof of purchase and is to be ...

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 ...

No stopping. (The small arrow points to where you can't stop.)

What does this road sign mean? It means you should do at least the theory part of the german driving license before driving around there clueless. Here are the official rules (StVO = Straßenverkehrs-Ordnung): https://www.juris.de/purl/gesetze/_ges/StVO You should know them before even starting the car engine on a parking lot. I would never drive in ...

What the law says In California, as in most jurisdictions, exceeding any posted speed limit is considered speeding. You can be ticketed for going 1 MPH above, and I've seen it happen. You can also be cited for speeding if you are driving faster than a reasonable speed for the conditions, even if it's slower than the posted speed limit. In practice It's ...

You will need a 3-day transit visa. At present, this is the only way for westerners to enter the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as independent tourists. (Excluding a sub-18 hour air transit.) The visa must not be endorsed "Entry by air only". Unfortunately, I don't think this category of visa is open to you unless you are a resident in one of the Gulf Cooperation ...

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 ...

There is not much you can do to support seeing lane markings. I would still visit an eye specialist (especially if you are getting old) because you can have nyctalopia (the inability to see the lane markings on low light is one warning sign) or photophobia, sensitivity to light (the rain causes strong light reflexes which does not allow the eye to see ...
