Driving Advices for Japan – Traffic Regulations and Road Usage Peculiarities
Previous hints
As many as 99% of intersections in Japan have traffic lights. Traffic lights are used to define the priority while crossing roads. The so-called interyard driveways usually have spherical mirrors, but one can rarely see them in large cities.
On city roads the maximum distance between traffic lights is 100 meters, and on some roads they are installed every 50 meters. Surprisingly, such a number of traffic lights don’t contribute to the formation of traffic jams. On the contrary, thanks to them the traffic becomes very well-organized.
A huge number of traffic lights is also a great way to make all drivers follow the speed limit. Japanese drivers are already well-disciplined, but such frequent traffic lights at intersections completely eliminate the possibility of breaking the speed limit.
