Driving around the World
This series of articles seeks to describe to the visitor many of the nuances of road travel in the selected country.
Some aspects of driving in a foreign country may be familiar to the visiting motorist, but other aspects may be quite unusual.
Whilst these articles do go into reasonable detail in many areas of road and traffic driving conditions and conventions, they are each of a specific length, so can't promise to cover every eventuality. Indeed whilst road traffic law for the specific country may be known in detail to the author, these articles cannot convey every detail of law in each country. These articles are intended primarily to boost the safety of the user whilst driving, and no responsibility is accepted for any error or omission relating to traffic law.
If more details of road traffic law are required, it is recommended that at the first opportunity a Highway Code, i.e. a book of road traffic rules, should be sourced in the visited country. Unfortunately, whilst many countries publish this information in English, in other countries these books are often only available in a local language.
If more detail is required for any country, it is strongly recommended to seek such details from the local traffic police.
Whilst the information contained in these articles is as accurate as possible, it will not take the place of a structured driver familiarisation training programme.
If any reader would like to add any comments, or would like to inform me of any errors or omissions, please contact me.
