The answer depends on the municipality. In the case of Boston, the short answer is yes: Parking meters remain in effect during snow emergencies. But, while parking enforcement will be active in the city, their focus will be towing cars parked on "snow emergency arteries" (i.e. major thoroughfares which receive priority attention for snow abatement for ...

They mean the HiAce which is commonly used in Pakistan for inter-city transport. Image Credit: wikipedia Here is one in action:

Signs like this are an artefact of earlier postcode assignment schemes that recall when the sign was manufactured. They may or may not sync up with the current postcode, or may indicate only a portion of the current postcode. There is no effort I'm aware of to make the older signs to synch up (presumably because of the cost). The discrepancies are not, to ...

Just found this one @ http://poleofcold.com/the-zimnik-road-a-photo-story. Tried to find its location, to no avail unfortunately.

I would recommend getting a CB. Quite often I got good information from truckers about traffic conditions. You don't need to actually install one though. I use a mobile CB that looks like a Walkee talkee. I use one like the one here: http://travelhintsandtips.com/road_trip.php and would recommend one like it if you aren't going to be using it on a daily ...

There is absolutely no problem with your wife following you in. It is normal when families are renting trucks and the weight inspectors and state troopers are well aware of it. The good news is the process is simple - just roll over a road, follow the stop sign and be on your way. You might be asked (should you be over the weight) if you are carrying ...

Yes, you can. However, make sure that you booked your rental car in advance for a price that includes the one-way fee for this route (these fees can be very high). Also make sure that the quoted rate is for a non-resident, includes a reasonable insurance and is valid for drivers from your country (US citizens get different rates). look up the differences ...

According to the US embassy in Guatemala: U.S. driver's licenses may be used in Guatemala for a period of thirty days. So the officer was right. Anyway, according to the same page, you have three options to drive there after the thirty days: International Driver's Licenses: We understand that Guatemala recognizes the International Driver's ...

There are a number of websites where you can check the evolution of fuel prices. Taking a random result from Google yields this one. With a rough daily price you can then use an online tool such as numbeo to compute and estimate of tour fuel consumption, using miles-per-gallon-type (mpg) metrics, and thus an average price for your roadtrip. The fuel ...

I used to have a portable CB that plugged into the cigarette lighter and had a magnetic antenna to put on the roof of the car. It was my grandmother's, for use in case of emergency, and when she gave me her car, I got the CB, too. During the time that I had this CB, I was driving around 30,000 miles a year. It was definitely useful for long trips, for ...

I have not done this journey in a superjeep, only in normal transportation in summer months. But I can tell you that it is usually around a 2.5 hour journey. Its a fairly pleasant drive in my experience. During winter, Iceland only has around 4 hours of daylight per day. At worst, on the Winter Solstice (22nd December in 2015) the sun will rise at 11:23 and ...

I don't think taking I-87 is going to be a serious consideration for a trip between Montreal and Boston. It's on the wrong side of Lake Champlain, so you'll have to go far out of your way and extend your trip by an hour or more. The route taken by Greyhound is essentially identical to the first option given by Google Maps for a trip between Montreal and ...

The easiest way would be to take a taxi right at the airport. But it will be also the most expensive. BCN airport is quite bad connected with train, and the trains arriving at the airport link with Barcelona, not with other cities. On the other hand Barcelona is well connected with Tarragona by rail; maybe you looked for "Camp de Tarragona" station? This is ...

You can take a regional / commuter train, called Rodalies in Catalunya. Train line R2 goes from the Terminal 2 at the airport to Barcelona Sants (the main station in Barcelona) where you can change to the train to Tarragona (line R14, R15 or R16). The complete trip costs €7 and takes around 1 hour 30 minutes, and trains run at approximately 30 minute ...

I made a page that does exactly that. It can also take costs for accommodation, car rental and daily food and entertainment budget into account. For the trip you mentioned it might cost you a bit more than NZD 300. Keep in mind that it will cost you an additional ~NZD 200 your you want to take your own car with you from north to south island on the ...

Fuel prices are low at present in NZ, but fuel prices will vary from region to region. Tank up in big cities, not small remote country towns if you can help it. You can check average prices here: http://www.pricewatch.co.nz/Default.aspx?lyr=15&price_type=avg I would work on an average price closer to NZ$1.75 per litre. I assume you are driving a ...

We rented a car when we did that exact same trip. The car rental was inexpensive and the journey itself very easy now that Google maps works everywhere. The only problem was that parking in Tarragona itself was a pain and the hotel downtown in the tourist area charged us through the nose for their parking. If we were to do it again, we'd still drive (such a ...

I think the bare minimum km you can connect those dots is 1881km. (See this link for distance derivation) You'll go over about 3 passes, so that might increase your cost a little. You won't be going much over 100kph due to the high degree of speed enforcement so that may save you some gas money. You'll also find that on the westcoast of the south island due ...

I have always lived in CA, and if you ask me, this whole speed limit fast lane is BS, Myself and many others have been pulled over for going 10 miles over the speed limit while traveling in the "fast" lane. Dont believe it, they need you to go faster than the speed limit just to make their quota. Trust me, drive 65, or whatever the speed limit is, and stay ...
