The rules of the highway code are very numerous. Basic rules, to make the driving of motor vehicles safer and with which all motorists and vehicle drivers in general must comply, for better management of the road and traffic and to avoid dangerous accidents.
Of the various directives found in code, we are familiar with many, some of which are particularly straightforward. The obligation to respect road signs, to respect traffic lights, not to telephone while driving, not to drive while intoxicated, to park your car only in authorized areas, etc.
However, there are other decidedly lesser-known rules, which can lead to even severe penalties if not followed. For those who break the rules, the penalties range from monetary penalties (fines), deduction of points on the license, withdrawal of it, up to prison. All this, of course, depending on the seriousness of the alleged violation.
