Until the point where your two proposed routes diverge in the middle of nowhere in Utah, you will for the most part only see mountains from a distance, rather than be driving through them. But the similarity ends there. If you decide to follow the back highways through southern Utah and via Flagstaff, you will find yourself on very winding mountainous ...

What you've found is almost certainly the fastest route to the point you mention. Anything shorter would have to cross from east to west across the southern part of Death Valley National Park, and you can see on the Death Valley Map (PDF) that there is no such road south of CA-190 (not counting a 4WD road that would almost certainly take longer, even if you ...

If you were in Romania, you wouldn't have broken any laws. The Romanian law makes a clear difference between overtaking and passing. In Romania, you can overtake on the left lane only, but you can pass on all lanes. Overtaking (is the same as in US and all the countries of the EU): signal left, change lane, move in front. Passing (as being described by ...

From context, I assume you mean Canada to USA. If this is correct, the answer is yes, you can, at least if you're crossing overland. I have gone hiking in the USA before, while living in Canada. I drove a car over the border between Ontario and New York (state). Due to my Dutch passport I had to enter the tiny border crossing office and I was ...

You may be able to obtain a prescription from an Urgent Care facility like Cal Urgent Care or an emergency room in the hospital but it may be much simpler to get a portable refrigerator like Mobicool or Koolatron that you can keep the insulin in and have it plugged in while in the car or with the adapter in any room with an electrical outlet.

Almost all earplugs sold for work situations. When working you are not supposed to block out all sounds and responsible employers will supply earplugs that take out the hard edge of sounds but not all of it. The plugs you see for sale for travel are OK as well as long as you do not have the 'wax, you will not hear a sound when sleeping' kind. And I have ...

You could try ear protection which are designed to attenuate not eliminate noise. Currently dubs seem to be popular, designed for concerts and reduce sound by 12db only. But there are other options out there. DUBS Acoustic Filters are advanced tech earplugs that reduce volume without sacrificing the clarity of sound I've never tried them, but they get ...

I was born in Johannesburg, and lived in South Africa for 22 years. I drove my self around since I was 18. I have spent time in all the major cities and driven the Johannesburg-Cape Town road (~1500 km) at least 10 times. From my experience, you certainly should stop for red traffic lights and generally obey all rules of the road. The only possible ...

I have family and friends in Pretoria and Johannesburg, and they all stop at a red lights. But this is my opinion

Yes ofcourse, we do stop when the traffic signal shows red light as it clearly means to Stop. I have relatives staying at South Africa and I have never heard of them saying they do not stop at red light of traffic signal. But yes,different countries have different traffic rules so it would be better if you would hire a driver for your own safety.

No. The red lights indicates "STOP". So we have to stop when the red traffic sign indicates.

If the rule of thumb would be to not stop at a red light (in South Africa), traffic lights would be pointless. if there is a rule of thumb in relation to this, it's that if you are driving and you feel threatened, if running a red light will diminish the threat, it's reasonably ok to run a red light. I lived (and drove) in Johannesburg for about 2.5 ...

Disclaimer: I have never driven in South Africa. This BBC article says that half of all South African carjackings occur in Gauteng, and elliptically suggests that local drivers will disregard stop signs and stop lights in this province to avoid becoming a victim to the practise. Carjacking is a category of danger that would be novel to most visitors ...

I think better lights are the only real solution, especially if the road lines are unclear. I've always had more difficulty driving at night and try to stick with well-lit roads or streets I'm familiar with.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
