Kosovo Driving Advice and Car Hire Info
Driving In Kosovo
Main roads are usually in reasonable condition but minor roads may be in a worse state of repair and mountain roads can be narrow and poorly marked, and lack guardrails, and can be dangerous in winter when fog can reduce visibility.. Roads in towns can be narrow, crowded, and used by a variety of vehicles, from KFOR armored personnel carriers to horse-drawn carts. Driving standards are often poor- with fast aggressive driving much in evidence in Pristina. Drivers routinely ignore road rules including red lights at junctions so you should expect the unexpected and drive defensively. Many vehicles are old and in a poor state of repair and many will be poorly lit so you should take extra care when driving abroad here at night.You should avoid driving to North Mitrovica area due to sporadic violence there.
