In Midland, you'll have to stick to the right side. When road-tripping someplace new, it's wise to opt for an automatic vehicle. That way, you can focus on the road ahead and save worrying about gear changes.
Most of the time, finding a spot to park the car in Midland is a simple task. If you're planning to head to one of the busier sights in town, it's a smart idea to look at parking options before you go.
As with most cities, the roads are usually busier in the hours before and after work. However, due to its smaller population of about 2,600, traffic jams aren't much of an issue in Midland.
Speed limits vary across the city of Midland, but generally range from 20 mi/h to 70 mi/h. Most residential zones have a maximum speed of 20 mi/h unless stated otherwise.
Normally, one of two things will happen. Your rental car company may charge the fined amount to your credit card. This is the usual practice. Or it may pass on your contact details to the relevant local authority so the fine is sent straight to you.
It's legal to use a cell phone while driving around Midland. But we suggest that you err on the side of caution and avoid using your phone — it's best to keep your eyes on the road.
In Midland, it's a punishable offence to drive with a BAC (blood alcohol content) greater than 0.08%. If you're thinking of having a couple of drinks with lunch or dinner, you'd be wise to leave your rental car behind.
Traffic laws in Midland permit drivers at a red light to turn into the direction of traffic nearer to them, without waiting for a green signal. Before making the maneuver, the vehicle must completely stop and the driver must check that the way is clear before proceeding.
In short, yes. Although, there are exceptions for certain vehicles run by public transportation networks.
