All rental vehicles in USA/Canada have automatic transmission and air conditioning. An International driver’s licence is not required as your Australian driver’s licence is permitted. Generally the speed limit is 65 mph, except where lower speeds are sign posted. Speed limits are strictly enforced with heavy penalties. Seat belts are required to be worn by all passengers both in the front and back of the vehicle in most states. Drinking alcohol and driving is also forbidden and strictly enforced in all states.
The USA has an extensive system of interstate highways and state maintained roads. Some of the major highways are toll roads often called turnpikes, but most are free. All major interstate highways running north to south have odd numbers and are ordered from I-5 on the Pacific coast, to I-95 along the Atlantic coast. All interstates running east to west are evenly numbered beginning with I-8 and I-10 near the Mexican border, to I-94 near Canada.
The American Automobile Association (AAA) provides a wealth of information to drivers. Under a reciprocal arrangement, the AAA provides benefits free of charge to members of any Australian motoring club (NRMA, AA, RACQ) by simply showing your membership card. The AAA provides free maps and tourist guides for all cities and states in the US. Many hotels offer discounted rates to AAA members. Simply visit an AAA office within the USA and present your Australian membership card.
