Traffic laws in Italy

Signs with an upside-down red-and-white triangle indicate that you do not have the right of way.

Right turns are never allowed on red lights.

One of the most common fines novice drivers receive in Italy is by entering pedestrian-only roads, which are often marked with signs reading zona traffico limitato or area pedonale. Making this even trickier is that many GPS systems don’t know these roads are only for pedestrians, so do your research.

Know that when renting a car, it may be difficult to rent an automatic, so make your reservations as early as possible.

Road signs often don’t include directions, and instead use cities as an indicator as to which direction a driver is headed.

Speed limits often are enforced with cameras, with the fines going to your rental company, which will add the fine total to your credit card.
