And don't drive on the left, drive in the shade, don't expect them to give way to you either, stay away from trees, walls, and anything else that doesn't move or they might just run into you, this isn't the drivers fault though, it's the cars they have minds of their own.
Any Tourists that are going to Malta and may be thinking of hiring a car while there, Please remember that in Malta there is no such thing as giving way to the right at Roundabouts, and indicators are Non-Existent.Enjoy your Maltese driving experience.
I just watched three cars squeeze into two lanes.
1st log in on this camera for awhile, the round- a- bout sign may as well stay lying on the floor because no body knows how to use a round- a -bout any way,Its always a free for all. I guess the road markings are not going to be be repainted, whats the use , no one knows what there for any way.
I just love the magic roundabout.
After you, no after you i'm in no hurry.....NOT! Just proves that 6 in to 2 will go.1
Is that man in a highviz top supposed to be a traffic cop? If so he is rubbish. Why doesn`t he stop the traffic on his right every now and then and give the traffic to his left a chance.
Derek, we hire a car when we're in Qawra (always Josef car hire) and we drive like locals. Your right arm hanging out and regardless of what side you should be on it's either in the middle or where the shade is, oh, and be noisy at your fellow driver!!! Tony Tidswell is right.
Derek, I'm in Malta now had a car since Tuesday and the Maltese are still as bad as ever,. Don't forget there are no motorways over here, plenty of dirt tracks which my sat navigation keeps sending me down, thankfully I know better from past experiences.
Tony.I've been practising last week I had to go down to East Sussex to pick an old motorcycle up, down via M1 and A34 etc. then back via the A3,M25, M1 plenty of lane changing just to keep moving.
Derek, words of advice when driving in Malta, Do not be polite to anyone; overtake on the either side; do not give way at junctions or roundabouts; ignore pedestrians crossings and lights; use bus lanes to get there faster, and whatever you do don't you dare use indicators when turning. Oh and don't forget enjoy the experience, I do.
I just love watching the traffic cams in Malta to study the Maltese way of driving,may pluck up the courage to hire a car or motorbike on my next trip.
Unless you're from Malta that is. :-)
The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender,religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that, deep down inside, we All believe that we are above average drivers.
