It depends on your driving skills. Some roads in Brazil don't have an excellent condition, if you are not careful you may end up doing some damage to the car(mainly flat tires) due to holes in the roads. Also, some roads don't have a decent illumination during the night, so it is preferably to travel during the day when the visibility conditions are better. ...

It varies by state. In some states, speed cameras are not allowed; in others, there are speed cameras. You can see lists of camera enforcement laws by state from reputable sources here and here. For your case, there are no speed cameras in California or Nevada. There are in Arizona.

The highways that loop around both the West Maui Mountains and Haleakala are both in poor condition, but can be driven in a standard sedan, four wheel drive is not necessary. However, your rental contract may prohibit driving around the backside of Haleakala (and some also prohibit driving the West Maui Mountain road). This prohibition stems mostly from ...

From what others have said, you don't need one at all. Wikitravel, usually reliable on this, just says that people rent cars. A local on yelp states that even for the Hana highway, a 4x4 is not required. And a Jeep rental agency even states that: Unlike Big Island (or Kauai), Maui roads are generally good and you absolutely don't need the power of ...

I think you misunderstood the LEZ, or maybe I did? Quote: "The Low Emission Zone (LEZ) operates to encourage the most polluting heavy diesel vehicles driving in London to become cleaner. The LEZ covers most of Greater London and is in operation 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year." The key phrase is, "heavy diesel vehicles", which means 'good vehicles' or ...

Something to consider this time of year, especially early morning / late night down south is the ice risk. If it's still cold, ice and indeed fog can be a factor. Also beware of early morning livestock being moved on the roads. Last time I did this trip I took the 'Presidential Highway' (through Clinton and Gore - the southern route) and it was fairly ...

I'll ask my wife tomorrow and she'll contradict whatever I suggest BUT they are all lovely and scenic and not overly terrible to drive. I suspect that its is likely that by far the greatest danger to your likelihood of lifelong happiness will occur at the conference :-). Almost a 3 side coin toss - but I'd say take the most northerly. But all are marvellous. ...

As I recall I got the same notice on my phone last night, after having taken that exact road to get home. It seems to either be a bug or they've interpreted a traffic notice incorrectly: there are roadworks on that particular freeway with single-lane traffic from Vrasene (on the left on your map) going east to just past where it joins the R2 with part of the ...

I'm not from Belgium, but I suspect it might be a bug. The A11 in the UK was closed today following a collision (see twitter tweets about it and perhaps Google's placed it on the wrong A11.

Michigan specific information Michigan does have a section of law regarding traffic control areas. This mostly deals with crosswalks at signals, but portions of it refer to crosswalks in general. See state statute 257.612 which deals with disabled individuals crossing at any crosswalk, not just signal locations. There is also a definition of school ...

In the US, crosswalks are regulated in state laws and most states have some sort of regulation that motorized vehicles must yield for pedestrians being within a crosswalk. This is of course quite odd, since in most situations, the pedestrian must move into the road and potentially put himself in danger, to get the right of way on his side. Michigan is one ...

Both I-80 and I-70 being major highways are kept plowed during the winter months. Assuming you are not driving during a snow storm, both should be similar in terms of driving difficulty. I would suggest watching the weather and then make your decision right before you leave based on what is coming in. If there are no fronts approaching, enjoy I-80, if ...

You are probably likely to encounter somewhat less snow on I-80 due to its lower elevation. However, there is a significant chance of snow along either route. Note that I-80 also crosses snowy mountains in Utah and in eastern California. Furthermore, if you are crossing Colorado on I-70 in November, you may well encounter snow at that time also. In ...
