1. Seat belts are compulsory, including for passengers in the back seat – but if your taxi doesn’t have seat belts in the back, you won’t get into trouble.
2. Pedestrians always yield to cars, even at pedestrian crossings. Don’t stop to let people cross the road, as you’ll disrupt the flow of traffic and it could be dangerous.
3. Police roadblocks are common. If you’re stopped for a minor traffic violation, you’ll probably be asked to pay an on-the-spot fine that may or may not be justified. It’s advisable to pay it rather than get into an argument.
