istanbul traffic

The traffic in Istanbul is generally congested during work starts hours in the morning and during rush hours when people leave work in the evening. There is congested traffic on the main roads. The traffic lights, signs and boards in Turkey are in compliance with the international standarts. At the crossroads, if there is a traffic police officer, his signs shoulb be follwed, or else the traffic lights and signs ahould be complied with. Pedestrian crossings, overpasses or underground passages are used at the places where there is no traffic police officer or traffic lights.

If there is non of those mentioned obove, you shoul cross the street as fast as possible at right places considering the distance and speed of vehicles, and after you decide that it is safe to cross.

Traffic lights are of international standarts, and green light means you can cross, yellow light means you must get ready and be careful, and red light means you must wait. Flashing yellow light means you must cross slowly and carefully; and flashing red light means you must stop first to see if the road is open and available. In Turkey, vehicles run on the right of the road, and distance is given in km. If you are travelling on foot, use the pavements on the routes you are walking through. On the roads where there is no pavement, you can walks one after one on the side walks called banquette. As steering wheels are on the left side of cars in our country, it may be saffer to go through the left side of the road according to your direction.
