When renting a car in Germany it's good to be aware that, whilst a warning triangle is not a legal requirement, it is expected that you will be able to warn other road users about your situation if you breakdown - German residents are required to carry one - so all in all it's highly recommended. Please check with your car rental company that there is one in the vehicle before leaving the car park.
Should you be unfortunate enough to pick up a fine and are unable to pay it, your car can be confiscated. Motorists can be fined for speeding, becoming abusive, making rude or derogatory signs and even running out of petrol on a motorway.
If you bring a GPS based navigation system to use in your hire car which has maps indicating the location of fixed speed cameras you must have the ‘fixed speed camera PoI (Points of Interest)’ function deactivated. Should you be unable to deactivate this function the GPS system must not be carried.
The use of radar detectors is prohibited in Germany.
Winter rules - you must ensure your car is adapted for weather conditions - in winter this normally means winter or all year tyres, and snow chains may be required if the weather conditions dictate - seek guidance from your car hire company.
