There is no law against non-english speakers driving unless you are a commercial driver. I am sure this topic has to ability to get pretty hot so I might just post this and get the hell out of here. We shall see. I have never driven in a foreign country so I cannot say how important it would be to be able to read the language of said country or if the graphics on the signs are universal enough for everyone to understand them.
