As there are many one-way roads, traffic laws are often considered suggestions by local drivers, and streets can be in poor state, opt for a smaller car that will be easier to turn around, find a parking spot and swerve away from other vehicles. Also remember not to leave any valuable items in the car, especially not within sight.
Adhere to the speed limits in Santo Domingo even if locals do not. The police have their eyes specifically on tourists, so do not take any risks. General limits permit 40 km/h (24 mph) in built-up areas, 80 km/h (49 mph) on rural dual carriageway roads, and up to 120 km/h (74 mph) on freeways.

If possible, opt for a hotel that has parking included as the parking space may be safer and it is simply more convenient. On-street parking is also an option and is usually supervised by an attendant who requires a small donation to do so. There are also various parking lots close to El Conde, Ave Mella, or Calle Jose Reyes, to name a few.
