- Watch out on the autobahn; it’s a myth that there are no speed limits on German motorways. There are clearly signposted restrictions, especially around Berlin, so pay attention.
- Don’t leave the scene of an accident, no matter how minor. In Germany, if you crash into an unoccupied vehicle, you have to wait at least 30 minutes for the owner to return. If the owner doesn’t return, report to the police immediately. Ignore this rule of the road and you could face a hefty fine.
- Berlin is one of the most civilised cities in Europe when it comes to driving. Courtesy is king and almost everyone obeys the rules. It might be that Berliners are wonderfully well mannered or it could just as easily come down to the vast number of police cameras and traps all over the city.
