A road trip is calling, and Cahokia is a superb base for your St. Louis adventure. Located 5 miles from the downtown area, the first thing you'll need is the key to one of our superb rental cars. An SUV will get you around St. Louis in total comfort — or you might want to detour off the beaten track and uncover hidden spots with a powerful four-wheel drive. For city commuting, we'd recommend an economy or compact car. They might not be as spacious, but they'll be fantastic at slipping into those tiny parking lots.
You'll be pleased to hear that there's a broad range of luxurious vehicles to rent in Cahokia. What you opt for will depend on your budget and the activities you've got planned.

It's worth taking the time to get familiar with the road rules before you get behind the wheel of your rental car. If you're exploring in and around Cahokia, here's what you should know:
In Cahokia, motorists stick to the right side. When road-tripping someplace new, it's smart to rent a vehicle with automatic transmission. That way, you can concentrate on the road and not worry about gear changes.
Peak-hour traffic isn't a huge worry in Cahokia and the wider Collinsville area. With a population of 24,800, the roads aren't as busy here as they are in bigger cities.
It's relatively easy to find somewhere to park in Cahokia, though you might find it hard to nab a spot in the busier areas. Staying at a hotel that has on-site parking is a smart move.
The speed limits in the neighborhood of Cahokia are comparable to the rest of Collinsville, ranging from 10 mi/h to 70 mi/h. To ensure the safety of pedestrians and drivers, a maximum speed limit of 35 mi/h applies to most residential areas.
Most of the time, your chosen rental car company will bill the amount detailed on the fine to your credit card, including local taxes. Otherwise, they may supply your contact details to local law enforcement agencies, who'll then send a fine straight to you.
Seat belts are mandatory in East St. Louis. However, the rules may vary for some vehicles, like those operated by public transportation systems.
As is the case in many places, standard cell phone usage is not allowed while operating a vehicle in Cahokia. However, there is an exception for hands-free or Bluetooth functions. Just remember to maintain focus on the road.
While operating a vehicle in Cahokia, it's an offence to have a BAC (blood alcohol content) of more than 0.08%. Planning to have a couple of glasses of wine with lunch or dinner? Consider using a ride-sharing service or taking a taxi.
Traffic laws in Cahokia allow drivers at a red light to turn into the lane nearest to them without having to wait for a green signal. Before doing so, the vehicle must come to a complete stop and the driver must be sure that the lane is clear before continuing on.
