10 Road safety rules in America that carry hefty penalties

Road safety rules

Road safety rules may have some annoying stipulations, but they are put in place to protect you and your family.  Although there are general rules that apply across America always check the road safety requirements, regulations and rules before travelling to another state as these may differ from the one you live in.

10 Road safety rules that apply across America

#1 Drive on the right-hand side of the road

In America we drive on the right-hand side of the road, therefore the steering wheel of the car is on the right-hand side of the vehicle.

#2 White lines and Yellow lines

The white lines on the road are there to separate the traffic that is moving in the same direction.
The yellow lines on the road are to separate traffic moving in opposite directions.  Never cross into a lane separated by a solid yellow line, this is also very important in a place like Dubai (learn more: http://www.apexluxurycarhire.com/car-rental-locations/united-arab-emirates/city-of-dubai/).  If the yellow line is broken you may cross into the oncoming lane with caution and be aware of traffic coming towards you.

#3 School Buses

School buses always have the right of way and if they have red flashing lights you may not overtake them until the lights have stopped flashing.  If the bus is stopped to drop off children, you must wait for the buses stop sign to go down before continuing past it.

#4 Pedestrians

As pedestrians always have the right away, you must come to a complete stop should someone be crossing the road in front of you until they are clear of your lane.

#5 Car Horns

Car horns are a source of road rage as no-one wants to hear you blaring your hooter at them.  So, try and use it with caution and only when necessary.

#7 Safety Belts

A safety belt must be worn at all times whilst travelling in a vehicle.  Not only are you endangering your life if you do not wear one, but you could be endangering others as well, especially if you are in the back seat.  Babies and children under a certain age and or height must be properly and safely strapped into car seats or booster seats.

#8 Alcohol vs Driving
There is a certain threshold at which it is deemed safe to drive after having a drink but it is advisable not to drive at all while under the influence of alcohol. If you plan to rent a Mini Cooper in Dubai or any other car there, it is strictly forbidden to drink alcohol in public.

#9 Headlights and Turning signals

Always use your turn signals to indicate which way you are going.
In certain weather and at night you should ensure your headlights are on.

#10 Mobile Phones

Texting while driving is illegal as is the use of any handheld device it is always advisable to check the rules and regulations for use of mobile devices before travelling to your destination.  As they are deemed a distraction you should refrain from using them at all whilst driving.

Conclusion

Not obeying the traffic rules can lead to heavy penalties, loss of your driver license and even jail time.
Always ensure you know and understand the road safety rules whatever state, county or country you may be in.
