Travel Advisories and Warnings for Puerto Rico
It's good to have a rental car here, even
in San Juan where taxi's are plentiful.
Ambulances frequently drive with their sirens on, even
when they are not going to an emergency. Other vehicles rarely pull over
to the side when this happens.
The top speed limit in Puerto Rico is 88 kph and this,
in our opinion, is a risk. Drivers there consider traffic laws only
suggestions so drive defensively.
If you are driving in San Juan and notice diamond lanes
on the far right (cars drive on the right side there) don't be tempted
to sneak into them. They are for buses and buses travel in the opposite
direction in these lanes (ouch). Que Lastima.
Seat belt laws are strictly enforced and children under
12 years of age are not permitted in the front seat.
