Pennsylvania car hire information

What are the driving conditions like in Pennsylvania?

Car rental in Pennsylvania will primarily involve two things to which you might not be accustomed. The obvious difference between this US state and the UK is that you’ll drive on the right-hand side of the road, in a left-wheel drive car, while shifting gears with your unfamiliar right hand. You can either have a go at this, or just opt for an automatic vehicle for your car hire to remove the issue completely. Driving in winter in this north-east US state can present a few challenges. There is heavy fog in autumn, and the roads are snowy and icy in winter. In rural areas keep a look out for frequent animal crossings, both small and large enough to take out your windscreen and even inflict bodily injury. The state also has a substantial Amish community, who only use horse-drawn carriages on the road. Drivers are very respectful of these and you should never hoot at them as it can spook the horse. Only overtake when there is plenty of room to do so quite slowly.

What laws should I be aware of when driving in Pennsylvania?

There are two very important state driving laws to pay careful attention to when organising car rental in Pennsylvania. The first is the texting law, which isn’t an uncommon one in other parts of the world too, but it’s taken very seriously here. It forbids using any kind of hand-held device to write or read texts while driving. Strangely however, you are still allowed to make and receive phone calls. The other important law is the Steer Clear Law. If there is an accident at the side of the road, or a law enforcement official has stopped another driver, you are required to move one lane away from the incident, so that there is a free lane in-between. If this isn’t possible you simply need to slow down. When it comes to seat belts, only the front occupants are required to wear them, except for those under 18, who must wear them wherever they sit. Always check the local authorities’ websites for law changes before setting out.

What documents do I need to hire a car in Pennsylvania?

Cheap car rental in Pennsylvania is available to anyone 18 and over, although some classes of cars are restricted to those over 21 and others to those over 25. The UK has an agreement with the US whereby you only need your passport and driver’s licence to hire a car in Pennsylvania.
