Driving In Mauritius
Driving is on the left side of the road. Roads are generally in satisfactory condition but can be and uneven with inadequate lighting, making night driving hazardous. Road and traffic signs are posted in English. Driving standards aren’t always up to European standards so you should drive with caution. Drivers involved in an accident are required by law to remain at the scene until the police arrive. However, if an angry crowd gathers and you feel threatened, you should proceed directly to a police station to report the accident.
