And this is only possible with the flight completly empty, it could not be reproduced in "normal use" conditions (with passengers).

Greetings from Trieste. My first driving experience in Italy. I am the one who is trying to obey traffic rules and thus I am the one who looks like poor chaotic driver.

Now seriously, I've thrown a cyrillic letter which looks exactly like a latin one so the whole word doesn't get censored. Others include throwing an inverted exclamation mark ¡.

PS: Strange, keokiracer's post gets censored in the SSC app but not in the web.

This was a serious request, by the way....

Where can I get a quick but reasonably comprehensive refresher on signs I'll need to know? You do have some strange ones. (It can be in French; my Dutch is sketchier although I'm willing to try.)

This Wikipedia page is a good start.

Major concerns regarding North American driving and signs compared to Europe are:

- the principle of blank speed limits withing official urban areas (marked with a city/town name when you enter, and the same crossed diagonally when you exit)

- no right turn on red light

- transit (bus, bus+ taxi) only lanes - they are always marked but it can be tricky

- the fact prohibition signs (on a white circle with red border) don't have a cross over it (like a left arrow sign on such circle means no left turn)

- "Speed Zones" marked when you enter them (like Zone 30 in cities or Zone 60 in back country roads) and when you exit them

- beware of paid parking, even in small cities: instead of meters near each spot, you often need to find a nearby ticket machine, get a receipt after you pay, and put it visible from your windshield.

As you probably know, European traffic signaling rely much more on pictures then text, so you should be fine.

Thank you!

Even a place where I could read up briefly on the rules of the road. Is whatever basic driving rules guide is issued for learner drivers available on line? Because I don't know what I don't know, as the saying goes.

Priority signs (the yellow diamond sign) is not a warning sign like American black and yellow diamond signs, but tells you that you are on a road where you have priority and entering traffic yields. In other cases, priority to the right applies (rural intersections, etc).

Round blue signs indicate mandatory movements and tells you which direction(s) you may go. In America the approach is usually the other way around, with non-allowed directions posted as prohibited instead.

I knew that site (Rick Steves does good TV travel shows, focusing on Europe, from the consumer's point of view) and was actually browsing through it the other night for info on things like phones. But I hadn't looked at the driving page yet.

So thanks.

I still have the rest of June to figure it all out; driving rules are today's obsession; tomorrow it'll be something else.
