###Driving tips

  • Driving is on the left side of the road and the steering wheel is on the right side of the vehicle.

  • Staying in the outer lanes allows speeding vehicles to pass by. Also, be prepared for over speeding, lane splitting, honking and even cars coming from the wrong side of the road.

  • Animals and people tend to cross highways suddenly, so stay alert.

  • Do not blindly follow Google Maps or SatNav as they don’t give an idea about road conditions. Talk to locals and other drivers before setting out.

  • Pack light snacks and drink lots of water to avoid dehydration as Lucknow weather can get hot.

  • Compare prices and check your own needs before renting a car.
