In mainland Europe the rule is actually occupy the free rightmost lane unless when overtaking. In other words, the leftmost lane should be used exclusively for overtaking and not to cruise in. Indeed doing so is an offence and could result in a fine regardless of whether you are driving at the speed limit and nobody can legally overtake you. It follows ...

You were right. You are not allowed to turn on a red arrow. The Pennsylvania Driver's Manual says you can turn right on red after stopping, but only at a steady red light, unless a sign is present prohibiting such a turn. (This is actually true in almost all of the United States, with the notable exception of New York City.) However, at some ...

In general, no. Germany e.g. changed the law from the necessity to drive right at all times to allow staying in a lane if and only if there are vehicles on the right side for approximately every 20 seconds. If the road is empty, you are obliged to drive right. No exceptions. It depends on culture, but e.g. in Germany it is not your business to dictate ...

Wikipedia has a page on the Greek Alphabet, showing the conversion between its letters and the ones used in the Latin alphabet. This will help you decipher the text, but not the meaning. Below is a screenshot of the conversion table which can be found on the linked page: Last time I went on a road trip in Greece (2008) I don't remember reading that many ...

IT IS AN EXTREMELY BAD IDEA UNLESS FULLY COVERED BY INSURANCE AND EVEN THEN MAY BE A VERY BAD IDEA IF HE IS NOT USED TO US CONDITIONS You need to be absolutely certain that your "coverage for other drivers" does in fact cover him fully. There will be requirements re drivers licence that he must meet (not only will he need to have one but will probably need ...

Yes, there is an official transliteration scheme from the Greek alphabet to Roman. The Greek Government uses the Hellenic Organization for Standardization (ELOT) standard 743. Wikipedia has the full table: I'll not reproduce it here, since Stack Exchange doesn't support tables and the Wikipedia table also includes other transliteration schemes. Note that, ...

If you are going "the speed-limit", in almost every location I've ever lived in the US, you are the slowest person on the road. If you are the slowest person you aren't passing. If you aren't passing and you are on the left, then you are breaking the law (where applicable). If you are going above the speed limit, and other cars are stuck behind you then, ...

Remember that for most, adjusting to driving on the left isn't the hard part, it's adjusting to sitting on the right of the car. You'll have this instinct to veer more to the left of your lane than normal - fight this! Roundabouts also seem to surprise some foreigners (we have them in NZ and see the results). Follow the general rule that traffic in the ...

From USA.gov, it appears it's very much dependent on which states you plan on driving in: If you are a visitor from outside the United States and Canada who plans to drive in the U.S., check with the motor vehicle department of each state you will drive in for its requirements. Some of the states will require an International Driving Permit (IDP) ...

As the other answers have already pointed out, the laws vary greatly from one country to another. Here in Spain you would be fined and I think that you will also lose points in your driver license. I would like to point out that here overtaking over the speed limit is not illegal. In fact, you can go faster than the speed limit when overtaking (by 20 km/h) ...

Here in Ireland you will receive a fine and licence points, if you drive in the overtaking lanes but are not overtaking, regardless of your speed. Overtaking lane is any lane, other than the left most lane.
