I’ve always had an ambiguous relationship with cars. On one hand they are very handy for getting you where you want to go when you want to go, especially if your destination is a small town or village off-the-beaten path. Most adults in developed countries have a car or know how to drive one.

On the other hand, cars are expensive to buy and maintain, pollute the environment, are noisy, require your full attention when driving (forget wine tours or admiring the landscape) and cause a lot of accidents resulting in death or serious injuries.

As I wrote in the safety section of my e-books, one of the main dangers in many developing nations is not rape or robbery, but traffic. They don’t drive in India the same way they drive in Canada, that’s for sure!

Thanks to some careful lifestyle choices, I’ve been able to avoid owning or even driving a car my whole adult life. I think the last time I rented a vehicle was back in the mid-80s! Needless to say, I am not a confident driver (despite still holding on to a driver’s license). There are times while travelling when not having access to a car has limited my options and made me wish I were more confident at the wheel. I actually expended on this topic in a post I wrote last year about my other dirty little secret.

As a pedestrian, I also hate having to deal with heavy aggressive traffic when I travel, so I make a point of visiting car-free places whenever I can.

Today I’ve got this fun infographic about the strangest driving rules from around the world which I thought you might enjoy. It’s written in a very tongue-in-cheek style too!
