Before you begin driving in Oxford, familiarize yourself with the local rules and regulations. From rules about turning at red lights to cell phone regulations, here's what you need to know:
You'll be cruising along the right-hand side of the road in Oxford. Even though the conditions may be similar to home, it's always wise to drive a bit more cautiously in a new destination.
As the population of Oxford is about 21,300, you probably won't have much difficulty with traffic. That said, major roads are generally busier before and after work hours, so you may want to avoid driving then.
You'll discover plenty of places to leave your car in Oxford. Even in the thick of the action, there's usually a space right where you need it.
While navigating through the streets of Oxford, keep in mind that the speed limits range from 30 mi/h to 70 mi/h. Most residential areas are 30 mi/h unless stated otherwise.
Normally, your chosen car rental company will charge the fined amount to your credit card. Alternatively, the company may forward your contact details to the relevant local law enforcement agency so they can issue a fine directly to you.
Seat belts should always be fastened in Alabama. However, these rules may differ for certain vehicles, such as those operated by public transportation systems.
It's not illegal in Oxford, but we don't recommend it. For a safe journey, it's always best to wait until you've finished your journey before calling or texting.
In Oxford, it's an offence to operate a vehicle with a BAC (blood alcohol content) higher than 0.08%. If you're planning to have a few drinks over dinner, it'd be wise to leave your rental car at your hotel.
Yes, drivers can turn on a red light in Oxford. But first you must bring the car to a complete stop. Move on only when the lane you are turning into is clear of approaching traffic.
