From its expressways to its alleys, discovering Tampere will be as easy as pie with your own ride. But before you make a break for the fast lane, here's what you need to know about driving around this city:
In Tampere, motorists stick to the right side. When exploring a new place, it's wise to rent a vehicle with automatic transmission. That way, you can concentrate on the road and not stress about gear changes.
You'll find no shortage of places to leave the car in Tampere. Even in the busiest areas, you're likely to score a spot just where you need it.
As the population of Tampere is only 202,700, you shouldn't have too much trouble with traffic. That said, downtown streets can get busy in the rush hours before and after work, so you may want to avoid driving during these times.
Most residential areas in Tampere have a 50 km/h speed limit. Outside these areas, the speed limits usually range between 50 km/h and 120 km/h.
Generally speaking, your chosen car rental company will bill the fined amount to your credit card, including local taxes. Otherwise, they may provide your contact details to local law enforcement agencies, who'll then send a fine directly to you.
Provided you have hands-free functions like Bluetooth enabled, it's fine to use your phone while operating a vehicle in Tampere. But make sure you remain focused on the road.
While operating a vehicle in Tampere, it's a criminal offence to have a BAC (blood alcohol content) higher than 0.05%. Thinking of having a couple of glasses of wine while you're out? Consider using a ride-sharing service or booking a taxi.
It's illegal to turn at a red light in Tampere. If you come across one, take the opportunity to enjoy a mindful moment or two until the light turns green.
