Driver Safety in Nicaragua

Driving in Nicaragua is an extremely dissimilar experience than traveling in the US, and tourists and travelers should be aware of that before traveling along the Nicaraguan roads. As a common law, there are merely a couple of paved roads, mostly major highways, and yet those are in bad shape. Secondary roads, if you can even consider them as that, are unpaved and rough, full of potholes and obstructions, dark, and have no shoulder.

Driving in the nation is done on the right-hand side, like it is in the U.S. Tourists are warned that when traveling to Costa Rica or the Honduras for the duration of their visit to Nicaragua, they are to cross the borders at the main border-crossing sites, Las Manos and Penas Blancas. Traffic laws are very diverse in the country as well. Travelers involved in a fender bender in which an individual is killed is instantly under arrest till the cause of the fender bender can be discovered. You should never move a car involved in the car crash till the police arrive or the accountability consequently lands on the person who changed the position of the car.

As the government is devoting funds for infrastructure, including bettering roads and bridges, the rainy season keeps on taking its toll on the roads. Even the best highways in the nation include dangers that can cause a crash. Travelers to the nation are intensely advised to have insurance, make sure their car is in total accordance with Nicaraguan transit law and at all times to carry a cell phone in case your car gets stuck has engine trouble in the countryside. Even better, travelers are instructed to take on a professional driver acquainted with the area in the wilderness and let him drive you everywhere. On no occasion take a public transit bus, as they are in bad condition and rife with lawbreakers.
