Documents that you should carry:Don't forget to carry your driver's license when driving. Also, do carry your valid ID card as you are expected to have it with you at all times (for instance, police or any other authority person can ask for your ID when using a credit card etc). If a friend or a family member is going to drive at some point, make sure that they are also carrying their driver's license and IDs.
Parking Laws:Never park on the wrong side of the road especially when you are park in a town street. Also, avoid the corners with kerb markings.

What to Do at the Time of an Accident?
- Call 911 to report the accident – irrespective of the fact whether someone is hurt or not – and give them your location; don’t leave the place of accident before the arrival of police or highway patrol – it is considered a big offense;
- As per the common practice in US, a fire truck will be sent with an ambulance to check whether there is a casualty or not. After making sure everything is under control they will inform you to wait for the highway patrol.
- Highway patrol would prove quite helpful as they will complete all the paperwork that you will need to provide at the car rental company.
