Continents, followed by Countries
in alphabetical order
America -- see USA -- click here
Continental Europe (i.e. not including Britain)
European Driving Regulations, country by country
European Road Signs and Conventions (Continental Europe only, not the UK)
The European International Road Signs and Conventions website is a private attempt to highlight the difference between American and Continental-European standards. It has been written by a German gentleman and has some mildly confusing English phrases and words. It should be treated as being most useful in respect of Germany, quite useful for other Mainland-Europe countries, and of very little use in respect of the United Kingdom.
European Union -- overall (i.e. including Britain)
Middle (Mid) East

The US Army Garmisch Area Support Team provide some useful guidelines
Transport Department Road Users' Code (year 2000 edition)
This page had to be included here for the humor. For example: " Do we drive on the left or right of the road? The answer is 'both'. Basically you start on the left of the road, unless it is occupied. In that case, go to the right, unless that is also occupied. Then proceed by occupying the next available gap, as in chess." And there's plenty more where that gem came from. Click here!
