There are definitely not as many rules as there are in Singapore. The following are just some good-to-knows when you’re driving over there.
A blinking yellow light at an intersection means stop. Need I say don’t run a red light?
here is no general rule in Germany that prohibits passing in an intersection. The driver making a left turn must therefore check for rear traffic at least twice and, because of the rearview mirror’s “blind spot,” should not rely on it alone.
The basic speed limit is 50kph (about 30mph) in built-up areas and 100kph (about 60mph) elsewhere.
Parking wise, there are way more cars than parking slots. However, do take note that German towing fees are sky high. Round signs with red borders and a blue interior and an “X” mean no parking or stopping whatsoever. Similar signs with a single diagonal line mean restricted parking, or parking for a limit of three minutes only. Signs with only a red border and white middle mean no vehicles of any type are permitted.
Meanwhile, follow the basic safety rules and you’ll be fine 🙂
