Most Important Driving Rules

If you're a tourist who likes exploring new places in Turkmenistan, it's important to know the basic driving rules Turkmenistan has. Some interesting places are in areas where the roads are narrow and full of holes. So, you have to drive carefully. Remember these rules when you're driving so you can enjoy exploring Turkmenistan without any problems.

Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol is Prohibited

Turkmen authorities don’t tolerate any drunk driving, let alone any alcohol content in your body. So if you are planning to drink with your friends at a campsite or over meals, make sure you spend the night or day not driving. If you are not caught since you are in a remote area in Turkmenistan, never take for granted the thought of getting involved in an accident because you are drunk. You can expect traffic fines or penalties if authorities catch you.

Obey the Speed Limit Rule

You must follow the speed limit to avoid any untoward incidents. When in Ashgabat and other urban areas, you can drive at a maximum speed of 60 kph. If you are heading to destinations in rural Turkmenistan, remember to maintain your speed at 90 kph. Don’t overspeed in these areas so you can be ready to slow down if camels or other animals are crossing the streets. You can speed up on highways but make sure to maintain it at 110 kph.

Always Use Your Seatbelts

Not wearing seatbelts is one of the reasons accidents happen on Turkmen roads. No matter how good a driver you are in your hometown, it will always be different when driving on foreign roads. Do not wait for authorities or locals to reprimand you for not using your seatbelts. If you are driving with a toddler, make sure to provide car seats.
