  • At traffic lights, know that you must stop at a blinking green light, this will avoid a long chat with the police...
  • If you are at an intersection without a stop sign or light, the car on the right always has the right of way.
  • Be very careful when it comes to roundabouts unless otherwise indicated, cars already in the roundabout have the right of way.
  • In general try to avoid driving at night, expecially on small interior roads. In cities, after midnight, the lights all turn blinking yellow, right of way to the right!
