Albany is known for being a popular town, so it has a few traffic hotspots, notably on Highways 87, 90, and 787.

When driving, you are legally obligated to keep a distance equivalent to two seconds between you and the car in front of you. It is illegal to stop in an intersection if you cannot pass through a green traffic light due to road congestion. When driving on a road with multiple lanes, stay in the right-hand lane unless you are passing another vehicle. If you ever have any doubts about a traffic regulation, make sure to contact Albany’s department of motor vehicles to receive clarification.

When renting a car, even if it’s a cheap car rental in Albany or an economy car rental, you will be required to provide certain documents, such as a valid driver’s license.
