CROSSING THE ROAD

• Whenever possible, cross at a pedestrian crossing, traffic signal or pedestrian refuge.

• Make sure you have a clear view of approaching traffic, and where drivers can see you.

• If you cannot cross the whole road in one attempt, wait on the pedestrian refuge or median strip.

Using a signalised pedestrian crossingHide

• A green man means you can cross, if it is safe to do so.

• A flashing red man means you can continue to cross but should not start crossing.

• A steady red man means do not start to cross - wait for the green man before beginning to cross.

Follow the safe road crossing procedure – STOP, LOOK, LISTEN and THINK.

• STOP one step back from the kerb or shoulder of the road if there is no footpath.

• LOOK in all directions for approaching traffic.

• LISTEN in all directions for approaching traffic.

• THINK about whether it is safe to cross the road – when the road is clear or all traffic has stopped.

SMOKING

Many adults in Romania are smokers and, unfortunately, some of those who do smoke have little regard of non-smokers' comfort.

The Romanian Parliament recently approved legislation that bans smoking in every public/ closed space; fines are imposed on offenders (individuals or businesses).

Smoking is not allowed on planes, on buses and on trains as well as in restaurants and bars.

Luxury hotels have designated no-smoking floors but smaller hotels may be a little slow in designating non-smoking rooms/ floore.

Smoking is also prohibited in public places such as hospitals, concert halls, and theatres.

SAFETY AND EMMERGENCIES

Although violent crime against tourists is almost non-existent visitors should take customary steps to safeguard their valuables. Leave your valuables and passport in the hotel's safety deposit box or use a money belt kept out of sight. Be aware of pickpockets and scam artists in major cities.

Do not attempt to exchange money on the street; you will likely be short-changed or receive a pile of worthless bills. Beware of con men masquerading as plainclothes police; they may pretend to check your papers or accuse you of exchanging currency on the black market. In fact they might try to steal your cash. Real plainclothes police officers might only ask to check personal documents but never your credit cards or your cash. Not having your passport with you will not be a problem. The officer will come with you to your hotel to see your passport if he really has to check it.
