Take note of the speed limits as they reduce down to 60km/h when passing through villages. Traffic officials use radar as a means of trapping. If traffic officials stop you, be courteous and polite. If you are in the wrong, pay the fine but insist on a receipt. Please be aware that only police in white uniforms are allowed to stop and fine you for traffic violations. Please do not drive after dark as there are a lot of unroadworthy vehicles on the road without lights or reflectors. Pedestrians can also be a problem as most villages are alongside the road.
