Authorities emphasize the importance of taking precautions to ensure travel safety .  When traveling abroad, the odds favor a safe and incident-free trip, however, travelers can be subject to difficulties, crime and violence.  Some safety considerations include being aware of one's surroundings,  avoiding being the target of a crime,  leaving copies of one's passport and itinerary information with trusted people,  obtaining medical insurance valid in the country being visited  and registering with one's national embassy when arriving in a foreign country.  Many countries do not recognize drivers' licenses from other countries; however most countries accept international driving permits .  Automobile insurance policies issued in one's own country are often invalid in foreign countries, and it is often a requirement to obtain temporary auto insurance valid in the country being visited.  It is also advisable to become oriented with the driving-rules and -regulations of destination countries.  Wearing a seat belt is highly advisable for safety reasons; many countries have penalties for violating seatbelt laws .
