Holiday driving

When we book our holidays, we rarely think about the driving policies of the countries that we are travelling to. With important things to do like booking Car Insurance and flights, this one often slips our minds.

But it really is something important to consider. England is fairly safe to drive, but in other countries, where we are less sure of the rules of the road, it can be a lot harder. Take America for example. There are rules there that we don’t have her, which can often be confusing. For example, you can overtake in any lane, and you can often do U turns at intersections, something that would be considered illegal in great Britain. Another oddity is that you can often turn on a red light if you are going right.

In Abu Dhabi, it is not the law that you have to stop at a pedestrian crossing. With large, American style roads, this can often be very dangerous for pedestrians, particularly those who are not used to the different laws and policies of foreign countries.

But what can we do to keep ourselves safe? It is a good idea to research the roads before you go out and use them, especially if you have to drive on the other side of the road. This can be confusing enough even when the rules are the same, but with other factors to consider, this can be very dangerous. If you know someone who lives in the country, consult with them too, to make sure you have a good handle on the laws.

Make sure you have comprehensive Car Insurance, and enjoy your trip!
