Before you rent a car in Nord, read up on the local traffic laws. From rules about turning at red lights to parking regulations, here's what you should know:
In Nord, you'll have to stick to the right-hand side. When traveling someplace new, it's always a wise idea to rent an automatic vehicle. That way, you can concentrate on the road and not stress about gear changes.
Getting your hands on a car space in Nord isn't always quick and easy. That's why many search for a hotel that comes with a parking lot. When leaving the car around town, make sure you pay attention to the signage. Overstaying the specified time limit could result in a substantial fine.
Speed limits vary throughout Nord, but typically range from 15 mi/h to 70 mi/h. Most residential roads have a top speed of 25 mi/h unless posted otherwise.
Normally your car rental company will charge the amount stated on the fine to your credit card, including local taxes. Alternatively, they may share your information with local law enforcement agencies, who'll then send a fine straight to you.
Provided you have hands-free functions like Bluetooth enabled, you are able to use your cell phone while cruising around Nord. But ensure you keep concentrating on the road.
The legal BAC (blood alcohol content) limit when driving in Nord is 0.08%. If a big night is on the cards, leave your car behind and organize a different way of getting home instead.
Traffic laws in Nord allow drivers at a red light to turn into the direction of traffic closest to them, without having to wait for a green signal. Before making the maneuver, the car must fully stop and the driver must make sure that the lane is clear before proceeding.
Seat belts are mandatory in Chico. Having said that, the rule may not apply for certain vehicles, like those operated by public transportation systems.
