    • Do not exceed the speed limits. It is 60 km/hr on the city roads and 90 km/hr for the highways.

    • Never drink and drive; if you are stopped and the driver's blood alcohol level is more than 50 mg. percent, it will be counted as a major offense.

    • Phuket Island is full of curves and hills, especially the area near Patong Beach, so always keep vigil and drive carefully.

    • Keep an eye on the motorcycles! They are notorious for their inability to follow traffic laws. Be careful!

  • Parking on the roadside?

    It is easy to find a parking space for your car in Phuket, except in some busy roads in Phuket Town and Patong Beach, so never park your car on the roadside unless there is a sign which states that 'you can’. It is so because, if found, police may lock your car using chains; in that case, you will have to visit the police station to pay penalty, then only your car will be released.
