Peculiarities of traffic regulations in Czech Republic

Low beam should be always switched on.
At signaled crossings (i.e. at crossings with signal light) turning is forbidden.
There are three speed limits in the Czech Republic. In towns the maximum is 50 km/h, when you get outside the town the maximum is 90km/h, and on highways you should not go more than 130 km/h. As for highways in cities the maximum is 80 km/h.

General information on the rules of the road:
The traffic police stopping is extremely rare so if the car is stopped by police it means that the driver has committed some offences. The police issue a fine to foreigners on-the-spot and demand immediate payment of fines.  The average amount of a fine for standard offences (as prohibited turning or driving without seat belts) is 500 Kč. Speeding fines are fixed: 1000 Kč for speeds up to 20 km/h over the limit, 2500 Kč for speeds less than 40 km/h over the limit.

It is prohibited to drink alcohol before or while driving. No amount of alcohol in the blood is tolerated. This rule also applies to cyclists.

Just glancing at the road signs in the Czech Republic can be enough to make you want to jump in a car and drive: Budapest down that road, Vienna down this one and Dresden over there. Possession of a car may be the most convenient way of appreciating life in the very centre of Europe.
