"You may see traffic signs on..." Italy Warnings Or Dangers Tip by lengyelp

Italy Warnings and Dangers: 203 reviews and 133 photos

You may see traffic signs on the streets of Rome. You may know traffic rules. But they are of no use in Italy, as nobody cares about them. They are not interested in speed limits, traffic lights and such things. However, there are much less traffic accidents than you would expect. Probably it is because they can't be sure that the other driver will stick to the rules, so they have to drive very defensively. So if you are driving in a one-way street and an Italian is coming in the opposite direction, don't be surprised. He will give way and continue in his direction as if nothing happened.
