Seat belts must be worn, and children under 12 must sit in the back. Legal speed limits are 80kph on the highways and 30kph in urban areas. Roadside parking must be in the direction of the traffic and not on speed bumps. Traffic fines are payable only at the central police office. Petrol Stations are usually located on the outskirts of towns and villages - look out for Enacol and Shell, and petrol stations are full- rather self-service.
