Whatever the reason for your escape to Temecula, CarRentals.com has a fantastic selection of vehicles to take your pick of. Spending some quality time with your beau? Make things even cozier by renting a mini or compact car. A pleasure to drive and a breeze to park, you'll adore sitting alongside each other in one of these nifty rides.

For some, owning a prestige vehicle may be somewhat out of reach. But renting your dream ride is far easier than you think! Imagine the feeling of cruising down the highway in a swish convertible, even if it's only for a day or two. Or perhaps you're just after a set of wheels to get you quickly and safely from point A to point B. Flashy or thrifty? Either way, there's a rental car to suit your style in Temecula.
Before you hit the road in Temecula, read up on the traffic laws here. From rules about turning at red lights to seat belt laws, here's what you'll want to know:
You'll be driving on the right side of the road in Temecula. Even though you may be comfortable with the traffic rules, it's always wise to drive a little more carefully on roads you're not familiar with.
As the population of Temecula is only 100,100, you won't have a lot of trouble with traffic. However, city center streets are generally busier before and after work hours, so you may want to avoid driving then.

Speed limits vary in Temecula, but typically range from 15 mi/h to 70 mi/h. Most residential areas have a maximum speed of 25 mi/h unless indicated otherwise.
One of two things will happen. Your chosen car rental company may charge the fined amount to your credit card. This is the most common practice. Or it may provide your contact details to the relevant local agency so the fine is sent directly to you.
Although there are some exceptions, seat belts must be worn when the vehicle is in motion in Riverside County.
As long as you have hands-free functions like Bluetooth enabled, you can use your cell phone while behind the wheel in Temecula. Just make sure you keep your eyes on the road.
While behind the wheel in Temecula, it's illegal to have a BAC (blood alcohol content) greater than 0.08%. Thinking of having one or two drinks while you're out? Consider grabbing a taxi or using a ride-sharing service.
