Driving License From Europe to the US

If you are moving to the US from Europe, you will see some differences on traffic rules.

Here are the ones that I have noted from Ohio drivers' handbook;
You can download the a supplementary material from here.

Watch for School Buses
If a school bus is stopped on a street or road with fewer than four lanes,
all traffic in both directions must stop.

If a school bus is stopped on a street or road with four or more lanes,
only the traffic proceeding in the same direction as the bus must

The speed limit in a school zone is 20 mph.

Yield to;
The vehicle on your right if you both arrive at an intersection at the same time.(This is same with Europe.)
Vehicles that arrive before you at a four-way stop.(That's new for me)

Following Distance
It is not easy to convert mile to kilometers therefore keep the distance between the front car as "Follow the front car from at least 3 sec distance."

Also fines are doubled in all construction zones, be careful!

I encourage you to read the free handbook for drivers in Ohio from http://www.bmv.ohio.gov/

Happy driving...
