Keep on the left side of the road in Gorakhpur. If you plan to discover this destination on wheels, take note that the driver's seat will be on the right. It may take a little getting used to!

As the population of Gorakhpur is around 674,200, you shouldn't encounter too much difficulty with traffic. However, downtown streets are generally busier before and after work hours, so you may want to avoid driving then.
While motoring around the streets of Gorakhpur, keep in mind that the speed limits usually range from 40 km/h to 120 km/h. Residential zones are 40 km/h unless indicated otherwise.
One of two things will happen. Your chosen car rental company may bill the amount of the fine to your credit card. This is the usual approach. Alternatively, it may provide your contact information to local law enforcement agencies so the fine is sent to you directly.
Like many places, regular cell phone usage is not allowed while driving in Gorakhpur. However, an exception applies for hands-free or Bluetooth capabilities. Just ensure you maintain focus on the road.
The legal BAC (blood alcohol content) limit while driving in Gorakhpur is 0.03%. If you're planning a big night out, leave the car behind and organize some other way of getting home instead.
Traffic laws in Gorakhpur allow drivers at a red light to turn into the lane nearest to them without having to wait for it to turn green. Before making the maneuver, the car must stop completely and the driver must make sure that the lane is clear before proceeding.
