Driving Tips In Germany
A particular hazard of driving in Europe in the winter time is the danger of "black ice" or glatteis. The best way to recognize black ice is by surface reflection, but that dull patch just ahead might be ice also. Be especially wary in the early morning or late evening and near or on bridges. If you see the patch, take your foot off the gas quickly. Once on an icy section, do not accelerate, brake, gear down or make any sudden change in direction. Road signs are posted less frequently, so pay attention on the road. Traffic calming zones (Verkehrsberuhigungenzone), indicated by a sign showing a pedestrian and a child kicking a ball, are often found in residential areas. In them playing children may use the entire street and traffic must stop for pedestrians and move at no more than 7 km/h. Keep well behind other cars. If starting to lose control, steer toward the edge of the road where residues of sand and salt might help. Exercise caution while traveling on the older roads of Eastern Germany.

Road Tips for Germany
Always carry your driving licence, vehicle registration document (V5), and certificate of motor insurance. If your licence does not incorporate a photograph ensure you carry your passport to validate the licence. If the vehicle is not registered in your name, carry a letter from the registered owner giving you permission to drive.
