Driving in Different Countries When Renting a Car

Stops in Turkey

Turkish drivers observe the rules of the road very conditionally. The same applies to signals. For example, people here like to beep and blink the far-away light just when greeting another driver. Turkish drivers turn anywhere on the road without turning the signal. They can easily overtake a car at a time when it overtakes another. Pedestrians add even more chaos to traffic. They run across the roadway right in front of cars regardless of whether there is a pedestrian crossing or not.

Horns in Egypt

Only the Egyptians can override the Turkish drivers. They almost always use horns. When breaking, they can turn on the emergency signal and stop at night in the middle of the road without parking lights. Any difficult situations on the road are usually solved in a conversation while actively gesticulating and signaling. The situation is aggravated by the fact that there is practically no control over the traffic. There are no patrols that would monitor the observance of the rules, no road signs and markings.

Big Trucks in India

The traffic on the roads of India is perhaps the most dangerous in the world. The roads here are narrow and winding, many can hardly accommodate one car, and it’s simply impossible for two buses separate on the road. Cars often don’t have side mirrors. If you still want to drive in India, it is recommended to rent a big car. There is an unspoken rule in the country: a small transport gives a way to a larger one. The larger the car, the more respected you are on the road.

In Thailand, emergency signals are widely used as a means of communication. For example, it is turned on when a car is going straight at the intersection. The Thais use the blinking of headlights as a sign to let them pass. Despite the complexity of traffic, the police monitor the road rules here. Especially it concerns parking. If you park at the curbs of red or yellow colors, your car can be easily evacuated. The traffic in Thailand is left-handed and the turns to the left at the red light are allowed.

Italians are temperamental and drive quite fast. They can cut, come close to the car, drive too closely, and speed limits are not always respected. However, there is a rule that a pedestrian is always right. Therefore, pedestrians are usually allowed to pass even if they cross the road in the wrong place.
