Driving in Europe: Tips from Budget Travel

Did you know that if you wear glasses you are required to have a second pair in your car when you drive in Spain? And that in France children under 10 are not allowed to ride in the front seat? Or that in Sweden you should be very cautious about moose crossing the road?

Driving when traveling in Europe can be complicated. Not only are road signs in foreign languages, but rules are often different and there may even be ones you’ve never heard of; who knew that running out of gas on the autobahn in Germany will get you fined? Although I tend to stick to public transportation when in Europe, this helpful article in Budget Travel gives tips for those driving on the European continent which might help to alleviate some of the above problems.

Any other helpful European driving tips?
