Road rules and safety

Road safety and traffic rules differ within the EU. Find out what the various country-specific rules are. For example:

The EU has taken measures to improve road safety including clamping down on traffic offences committed in another EU country (except in Denmark, the United Kingdom and Ireland where the rules do not yet apply). This means that if you commit a driving offence when in another country, you could find yourself receiving the fine by post at home!

Download the "Going Abroad" app and get important road safety information for all EU countries wherever you are.

Make sure that you have valid and adequate insurance cover which extends to travelling in other EU countries.
