What different driving laws should I keep in mind while driving in Kalamazoo?

Most of the driving rules will likely be familiar to you, but there are a couple of things to keep in mind while driving hired cars in Kalamazoo. In Michigan there are laws that set certain speed limits as standard when no limit is posted. This means you can get a speeding ticket for exceeding these limits even if there are no speed limit signs. You must stop for pedestrians and bicyclists waiting at or in crosswalks where there are no traffic lights. Where there are traffic lights, those must be obeyed by motorists and pedestrians. If you refuse to be tested for alcohol or drugs, the police can still charge you for being under the influence because your consent to such testing is implied when you choose to drive in the state of Michigan. It is recommended that you check with the proper authorities upon your arrival for updates to the driving laws.

Will I need a special driving license or permit to drive a rental car in Kalamazoo if I’m visiting from another country?

You will be able to drive using your valid driving license from your home country while driving Kalamazoo car rentals, but if your license isn’t in English, it is advisable to get an International Driver’s Permit that is in English.
