Tips and advice
Speed limits are often based on the type of road you are on. On residential roads, its 50 kilometres an hour while on highways you can travel up to 130 kilometres an hour.
When travelling on highways, your car must have a particular sticker displayed at all times. Speak to your car rental agency to ensure you have the correct sticker and where you should display it.
Czech drivers are generally aggressive. If they think you are not driving fast enough, they will tailgate you. Rather just pull over and let them pass.
Do NOT drink and drive. Even during random traffic stops, you will be subjected to a breathalyser test.
Cars are required by law to drive with their lights on, even during the day. Make sure you adhere to this.
Every vehicle is required by law to have a first aid kit. Check with your vehicle rental company that your rental car does indeed have one.
