When you visit the United States of America from another country, you should be aware of some differences.  We still use the old British system of measurement, (the system that the British no longer use).

When driving an auto in the USA, you should bear in mind that each of the 50 states has its own set of laws and regulations concerning driving.

The regulations are all very similar, but there are some subtle differences that you should know.  We provide some useful tips.

Tipping is a common practice in most restaurants, bars and other service establishments.  Waiters and waitresses are paid a substandard wage on the presumption that they will earn additional income from tips.  We provide some tips on tipping.

Each state has different driving laws

  • If you drive in the USA, remember that each of the 50 states has its own set of traffic laws and regulations.
  • Fortunately, most of the laws are the same, but some states have slightly different rules. When you rent a car, you should ask the agent if there are any special driving rules in that state.
  • When driving in multiple states, check a tour book for any special driving rules in each state.
Maximum speed limits in all states
  • The speed limit in most states is now 65 miles per hour (about 110 km/hr) except where signs indicate slower or faster speeds.

Minimum driving age

  • The minimum age for driving is 16 in most states but some states will not allow unrestricted driving until 18.
  • Some car rental agencies refuse to rent a car to any person under 25 years of age.

Seat belts are required

  • Nearly all states have laws requiring the driver and front passengers to wear seat belts.
  • Many states require children to wear seat belts even in the back seats. Nearly every state requires special child restraint seats for all young children.
  • Most states require motorcyclists to wear helmets.

Radar Detectors illegal in some states

  • Some states permit you to use radar detectors, while other states prohibit them. Many people seem to ignore this prohibition.
  • Some states require you to use daytime running lights during rain.



Strict enforcement of certain driving laws


At 1,568 miles, Interstate 35 is the ninth-longest Interstate Highway. It serves six states: Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, and Minnesota. 


  • The speed limit in front of every school is greatly reduced when classes are in session.
  • The reduced limits in these school zones is posted on a sign.
  • When these reduced limits are in effect, lights with the limit signg will flash.
  • You are required to stop in both directions for any school bus with flashing lights.

American Automobile Association Benefits


  • The American Automobile Association (AAA), commonly called the “triple A”, provides some wonderful services to drivers.
  • They have offices in every city and most of the larger towns in the US.
  • If you are a member of a national motor club in your home country, you can receive many of their benefits free of charge by simply showing your membership card.
  • The AAA provides free maps and tourist guides for any city or state in the US.
  • Many hotels offer discounted rates to AAA members.
The US highway system
  • The USA has an extensive system of interstate highways and state maintained roads. Some of the major highways are toll roads often called turnpikes.
  • All major interstate highways running north to south have odd numbers and are ordered from I-5 on the Pacific coast to I-95 along the Atlantic coast.


  • All interstates running east to west are evenly numbered beginning with I-8 and I-10 near the Mexican border to I-94 near Canada.
