If you’ve never been to India, there are a few facts to be aware of before you grab the steering wheel and start racking up those miles. Familiarize yourself with these tips and then tour this country like the global wanderer you are:
Keep on the left-hand side of the road in India. If you’re planning to grab a rental car here, take note that the steering wheel will be on the right. It could take a little getting used to!
When driving in India, keep in mind that the maximum speed limit is usually 120km/h. The minimum is 40km/h. Unless posted otherwise, residential zones are 40km/h.
Generally speaking, your chosen car rental company will charge the amount listed on the fine to your credit card, including local surcharges and taxes. Or they may supply your information to the relevant local authority, who’ll then send a fine directly to you.
You bet. Although, there are a few exceptions for certain vehicles operated by public transportation networks.
As with many places, standard cell phone usage is not allowed while driving around India. However, there is an exception for hands-free or Bluetooth capabilities. Just ensure you keep your eyes on the road.
The legal BAC (blood alcohol content) limit when driving in India is 0.03%. If you’re planning on partying, leave your rental wheels behind and organize a different way of getting home instead.
Road rules in India allow drivers at a red light to turn into the lane closest to them, without waiting for a green signal. Before turning, the car must come to a total stop and the driver must make sure that the way is clear before proceeding.
