Driver Safety in Nicaragua

Driving in Nicaragua is an extremely different experience versus traveling in the US, and travelers and tourists need to realize that previous to hitting the Nicaraguan roads. As a universal law, there are just a small number paved roads, mainly main highways, and yet those are in bad condition. Secondary roads, if you can even think of them as that, are unpaved and rough, containing potholes and obstacles, dark, and have no shoulder.

Driving in the nation is done on the right-hand side, just as it is in the U.S. Tourists are warned that when choosing to visit Costa Rica or the Honduras in the course of their stay in Nicaragua, they only go across the borders at the main border-crossing places, Las Manos and Penas Blancas. Traffic laws are extremely diverse in the country as well. Drivers involved in a fender bender in which someone is killed is instantly under arrest until the reason of the wreck can be discovered. You should never change a car involved in the accident until the police arrive or the responsibility automatically falls on the individual who changed the position of the car.

At a time when the government is devoting money for infrastructure, including bettering roads and bridges, the rainy season keeps on taking its toll on the highways. Even the best highways in the nation contain dangers that can lead to a wreck. Visitors to the nation are intensely advised to retain insurance, be positive their car is in total compliance with Nicaraguan transit law and to always carry a cell phone in case your car gets stuck has engine trouble in the countryside. Better yet, tourists are directed to take on a qualified driver familiar with the area in the wilderness and let him drive you around. On no occasion ride on a public transit bus, as they are in bad condition and riddled with lawbreakers.
