Convention adopted the 82 states, including all European countries. Subsequently, the treaty ratified by Mongolia, Kenya, Niger, South Korea, Seychelles. Formally, the Russian national rights make it possible to drive vehicles in these countries, but it is not implemented in practice. For this reason, a tourist is bound to arise from the claims of foreign traffic police. For example, in Italy in the absence of IDP certainly discharged fine of 300 dollars.
