5 modes of public transport available
- Dedicated bicycle lane on every available surface Road

Preference on the road
- Private vehicle
To get a driving license
- Takes minimum 6 months
- Have to clear theory subjects which include providing first aid assistance in case of emergency
- Practical exam can only be taken if the certified driving tutor is assured completely of ur driving ability and traffic knowledge.
- It costs minimum 1500 euros to clear the tests if u are outstanding driver. it is Rs 1.2 lakhs.
Now u might criticise
for the super expensive cost
for a driving license.
But in my ongoing 3 months stays in Bonn Germany,
- I have not witnessed a single pedestrian accident
- There is no indiscriminate honking when there is a traffic jam 3. No signal jumping
- Every single citizen follows the traffic rules
- Pedestrian cross roads at zebra crossing, no Jay walking
- Traffic signs are visible and each lane is correctly marked
- When everyone follows traffic rules, there will be no traffic Jam
- When public infrastructure is on time and comfortable. Private vehicle ownership is reduced
Being a student, With a 300 euro pass for 6 month.
I can travel the entire state of NRW using the public transport (except IC) And I reach every place on time.
is an amazing mobile app which I use to plan my travel,
