Can anyone assist me as to where I can find the "rules of the road" in Namibia? Ie the equivalent to the UK Highway Code?
Rules of the road?! To me driving in Namibia was very much like driving in EU or UK, same signs, same rules. Once outside Windhoek you will be mostly alone on the roads. The most important "rule of the gravel road" isdrive slowly, keep your speed below 80 km/h. Anyway, again search internet for more info.
As xelas. Most signs will be familiar to you.
Local conditions seem to suggest Headlights when driving on gravel. Seatbelts of course. Halt signs mean just that. Lights are called Robots.
Most police are reasonably forgiving with a first time tourist for minor lapses.
Take a look at this.
Thank you for this.
Two things which come to mind are:
- four way stop junctions.
- (I think) it was illegal to cross the road as a pedestrian without a green man at pedestrian lights.
I am sure there was more, but it was a long time ago.
Coming from Canada our rules I was concerned about the same thing. In the end I just followed existing traffic and had no issues...other than turning on my wipers constantly...
