It is recommended that drivers stick to smaller vehicles such as sedans, compacts, small 4WD SUVs, and Jeeps if you plan on heading out into rural areas. Smaller cars will have a much easier time finding streetside parking spaces large enough for them in the city and they will have an easier time navigating the city streets and country roads.
Roads in the city typically have speed limits of 60 km/h (38 mph), but on occasion lower speed limits of 50 km/h (31 mph) are also seen. On rural roads and outside of built-up areas, the speed limit is usually set to 100 km/h (62 mph), while on major highways the speed limit goes up to 120 km/h (75 mph).
