Driving in Germany Tip of the Day Part 4

Just because there are no stop signs (there are only a few, and most of them are near the American bases), doesn't mean that you don't have to stop. In the case that there is no sign on your road, you have to yield to a driver coming from the right. It looks funny, but at every intersection on a non-priority road, drivers slow and crane their necks to the right to see if anyone is coming. If you have a priority road, you'll see a yellow diamond inside a white diamond up and down the road. If you're approaching a priority road from the right, you'll have a yield sign. There are lights, and for some reason, you'll see stop signs almost exclusively accompanying stoplights. There is one funny thing about it though...the light turns yellow before turning green too. And, a right turn is NOT allowed on red. I'm sure we come to Germany to drive as fast as we want on the autobahn. I'm sure Germans want to drive in the states so they can turn right on red!

I like knowing when the light is about to turn green.
