You don't always need to know the rules of the road in order to survive. You just need to have good instincts and a general sense of what's likely to be legal, as well as a penchant for always having all your paperwork on you - and be pretty darn good at actually operating your vehicle. However, unless you're driving almost exclusively on rural roads where you never encounter another driver - or indeed a pedestrian with fewer than four legs - then you really do need to know the rules in order to stay safe, keep others safe and not get on the wrong side of the law.
