Official Time

In game time will be used for in-game events.

Traffic Regulations

In compliance with the CDL standard:

ALL DRIVERS TO DRIVE ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE ROAD. (Except the Pachi Crown Viaduct, or when crossing borders into the A6, Falloway or Daneburg, in which case, ALL DRIVERS TO DRIVE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE ROAD.)

Drivers in Helix Bay are required to possess the Helix Driving License in their inventory at all times, or else be subjected to a heavy fine as well as a license revoke, or an immigration ban for serious cases. Spot checks by the Traffic Police are common, and failure to comply with the rules may result in severe punishments. (Exceptions apply to the future Pachi Crown Viaduct as it employs Right-Hand Traffic as a bypass between Falloway and Daneburg, and is the only road in the town to connect to the future A6. A license is not needed to drive on that particular road, but is owned and belongs to Helix Bay, and is regulated by the Helix Traffic Police.)

Driver License

Driving Licenses will be offered once the Driving Centre is completed.
