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 ...

Yes, if aircraft safety or your personal safety requires it, you will be asked to sit down and close your safety belt. That is true for all aircraft and any time of the year. Maybe they will allow you a bit more leeway because they understand that prayer is important for you, but if you do not belt in when it is dangerous, they endanger all passengers, ...

Generally speaking, "yes". A BA aircraft is registered in the UK and therefore is covered by the UK laws. Under the UK law it's an offence not to obey the order of the flight crew while on the aircraft. Specifically, this is covered by the Air navigation order 2009, section 142(c): A person must not while in an aircraft ... (c) intentionally interfere ...

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 ...

You will be 17 according to the local calendar. No one checks your "Place of birth" when they ask for your age.

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.

Lepido.ch is a French-language site dedicated to everything related to butterflies in Switzerland with a wealth of practical information. According to the site, some butterflies are protected in the whole country and some cantons add further restrictions on top of that. Bad news for would-be Nabokov followers is that Vaud (where Montreux is located) ...

Yes. If you stand up while the seat belt sign is on you will receive a sharp rebuke! If you remain in the aisle in the way of people moving about, you may also be asked to move out of the way or to sit down. However, many people do stand up during the flight and as long as you don't get in the way, it should not be a problem. You may be able to find a quiet ...

No, it is not the case. According to a DEN employee in 2014, the airport falls under the federal jurisdiction, and the federal government does not allow such sales to take place. Thus, all smoking lounges in DEN are cannabis-free. Apparently, according to the same employee, some people do manage to get past the security and into those lounges with their ...

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 ...

Most major airlines offer what is known as "Unaccompanied Minor" service. You will not see it as a booking option online, as normally you, the parent or guardian, need to call the airline to arrange this. It is an extra fee on top of the airfare. With the service, an airline or airport staff member will accompany the minor from check in to the gate and ...

Your question is based on the faulty premise that only one country can apply jurisdiction at a time. In fact, many states may have or claim to exercise jurisdiction simultaneously. In that case, all that really matters is whose judges you end up in front of first. To tidy this matter up, the Tokyo Convention limits how many jurisdictions apply. The Toyko ...

Suggestion If you cannot speak Indonesian, it is better for you to be always accompanied with an Indonesian you trust when making any contract. The hotel staffs might be the best choice because they can speak both Indonesian and English. As giving tips is common in Indonesia, just give them about 25,000 rupiahs for a 30 minute task. It should be enough to ...

It is ok to dress "like" a stewardess on a flight. That is to say, it is okay to wear a dress or clothing similar to what stewardesses would wear. Now stewardesses also were pins, badges, etc. for identification. These are the items that separate the "real thing" from "counterfeits." Don't wear these accouterments to actually identify yourself as something ...

According to the FAQs regarding IATA "Cabin OK": IATA is a standard-setting organization. Is this new carry-on size a new standard for the airline industry? No. Those who participate are not being asked to change their existing requirements. Some or all may continue to accept bags larger than those qualifying for the IATA Cabin OK logo. Actually, ...

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 ...

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 ...

The condensed version is: Before takeoff (and after landing), the laws of the current territory apply. Punch out a USAir flight attendant at the gate in Mexico City and you deal with the Policía Federal (and probably wish you didn't). In flight, the laws of the country where the aircraft is registered apply. However, the laws of the destination country are ...

No, you may not. Denver City Council passed an ordinance banning the possession of marijuana within Denver International Airport. It is an offense punishable by fine or imprisonment, although it seems to be laxly enforced. http://www.denverpost.com/marijuana/ci_24813887/dia-first-denver-facility-ban-marijuana-possession ...

Frontier Airlines http://www.frontierairlines.com/fron...nied-minors.do We're sorry but we won't accept unaccompanied minors who are under five years of age. Children under the age of five must be accompanied by an individual 15 years or older. We consider children from ages five to 14 to be unaccompanied minors when traveling without a companion of at ...

It really depends how well the uniform matches. I have inadvertently looked nearly identical to one of the male cabin attendants, right down to the glasses and (lack of) hair. Passengers were asking me all kinds of questions, and in most cases I knew the answers, so... The real attendant thought it was hilarious. However, in normal lighting no one would ...
