Traffic regulations in Egypt
In general, in Egypt, it is almost the same traffic rules that in Russia or any other country in the world. At the same time the Egyptian police very loyal and ready to close my eyes to many things. Perhaps that is why the drivers are extremely insolent behavior on the road, where there is a immutable principle - who slipped, that's right.
Pay particular attention to the need to be "speed bumps" They may be located in a very unexpected places. Each protocol can be filled exclusively in Arabic, so to avoid surprises in the future, it is best to immediately request an interpreter.
In Egypt, may be fined for:
- not wearing a seat belt;
- chat on a cell phone without a headset;
- exceeding the speed limit;
- carriage of children without special car seats.
The cost of an average fine of $ 100. At the same time the police stop the driver will not - it will record the number of the machine, and then has the right to call the station and delivery of a receipt for payment of the fine.
Park the rental car in Egypt can be almost anywhere, but you must keep in mind that parking is strictly prohibited before the residences of diplomats and politicians. Road signs are not always visible, so it is best to focus on other parked cars.
The cost of fuel
Given the fact that a large part of Egypt - it is a desert, it is recommended that all drivers to fill not only the full tank, but also a few canisters that should always be at hand. Gasoline in the country quite cheap, with an average cost of one liter of 0.8 $. Diesel fuel costs even cheaper - about $ 0.25 per liter.
It must be said at once that virtually all of the key backbone of Egypt paid. These road sections include:
- Cairo - Alexandria;
- Cairo - Ain Suhna;
- Cairo - Port Said;
- Cairo - Ismailia.
Payment in the amount of 2 to 5 pounds is carried out at the entrance to the paid section of the road, and at the exit from the highway will need to show the controller the paid receipt.
