Driving in the UK

 

Parking is strictly policed in the UK - don’t leave it to chance without paying. Parking usually operates on a pay-per-hour rate, either by machine or via telephone. It’s prohibited to park on double yellow lines, these zones are the most patrolled.

 

The National Speed Limit on single-carriageway roads is 60 mph (97 km/h) (sometimes lowering to 50 mph (80 km/h), and 70 mph (112 km/h) on dual-carriageways and motorways.

In cities and countryside villages (where there is a high risk of pedestrians crossing the road) the speed limit is 30 mph (48 km/h), and sometimes it lowers to 20 mph near schools.

 

Watch out for motorbikes, especially in the countryside where single track roads and large hedgerows can obstruct drivers’ views. The chance of having an accident is also increased due to the small space for vehicles to pass each other.
