Driving in Mauritius
In Mauritius, one major highway runs north to south, otherwise a good network of paved, if sometimes narrow, roads cover the island. As in the UK and Australia, traffic in Mauritius drives, erratically, on the left. Driving is hazardous due to the recklessness of many drivers, and pedestrians, bicyclists, and animals along the sides of the narrow roads in rural areas. Only unleaded petrol is available on Mauritius and all cars use this. It costs slightly less than in Europe. Drivers are required to be over 18 years old. Speed limits are 110 kph (68 mph) on the motorway and 50 kph (31 mph) in built-up areas. Seatbelts are compulsory. A foreign driving licence is accepted, but it is always sensible to apply for an International Driving Permit.
