What is it like to drive in the country of Croatia?
Just like other European nations, Croatia drives on the right-hand side of the road. Overtaking can be done from the left. You cannot turn right on red signals.
Using phone while driving is strictly prohibited in the country unless with a hands-free kit. Failing to do so, will end you up with a fine of 500Kn.
In Croatia, using seat-belts is mandatory for all passengers of a moving car otherwise, an on-the-spot fine is charged. Children under 12 aren’t allowed to sit in the front-seat.
Avoid the rush hours in cities like Zagreb and Split which are 7-8 AM & 3-4 PM. at this time, the traffic might be congested, specially, at the city centers and Zagreb’s Main Square.
The countryside routes of Croatia are scenic but you have to drive patiently. You will come across locals selling stuff like jams, berries, etc. Do not drive off-road in the countryside as there might be landmines.
Do not stop to help people on roadsides to avoid potential crime. Croatia allows only 0.05% of alcohol in your blood while you drive, so be prepared for routine checks regarding the same.
Make sure that you drive defensively and take it slow as the Croatian drivers do not hold a very good reputation in terms of speed and overtaking. Roads around famous regions of Zagreb and the like are well-maintained with new highways connecting the cities.
Don’t drive on tram lines and use horns only when necessary. Most of the Croatian driving rules are similar to other countries except a few such as keeping the headlights on in winters along with snow chains and a shovel. Croatian Automobile Club (HAK) is there to help you in case of emergencies on the road.
