A Few Road Tips

- The first and most important one is to just be alert. This will keep you safe onrepparttar road 99.99% ofrepparttar 145394 time. I realised recently that I am now no longer just looking atrepparttar 145395 car in front of me when I drive, but I am also unconsciously looking through his windshield atrepparttar 145396 car in front of him. You will soon develop quicker reactions and a sixth sense for when someone is going to do something unorthodox. Driving back inrepparttar 145397 UK would probably feel pretty dull now!

- Care needs to be taken on roundabouts, because it seems thatrepparttar 145398 rule isrepparttar 145399 person who drives most aggressively, regardless of whether they are already onrepparttar 145400 roundabout or entering it, isrepparttar 145401 one who has priority.

- Unlike inrepparttar 145402 UK, when another driver flashes his headlights at you, he is not letting you pass, he is warning you that he is coming and to stay out ofrepparttar 145403 way. The same goes for when someone honks their horn. If someone is letting you pass, they will usually wave you through with their hand.

- In built-up areas, go carefully through crossroads, because people do not always respect stop signs and may also have their view of you blocked by cars parked right onrepparttar 145404 street corner.

- In response to what I said earlier about red traffic lights, whenrepparttar 145405 lights turn green do not move off without checking that there are no latecomers coming from another junction. When I first started driving here, I thought that people had a slow reaction time whenrepparttar 145406 lights turn green but now I realise they are just being careful.
