International road signs are used in Aruba. Foreign & international driver's licenses issued by a member country of the Geneva Convention, are valid. Car speedometers and road signs are in Kilometers .The speed limit in urban areas is 50 km/h , out of town it's 80 , unless a higher or lower speed is specifically indicated.
Much of Oranjestad's traffic is one-way and at intersections, where there are no road signs, traffic from your right has the right of way.
There is NO right turn on red in Aruba. There are many roundabouts (where the traffic IN the roundabout has right of way), that help manage the traffic and keep it flowing smoothly.
If you are on wet roads, you could encounter slippery conditions. The North Coast Plains are only accessible by dirt road, so if you are considering a trip up there, get an off-road vehicle. Mopeds or motorcycles are another option.
Arubans are so friendly they may stop right in the middle of the road to greet a friend or converse. You may also encounter small herds of goats in the roads.
Although Aruba is considered to be a safe place to visit, use common sense for personal safety and secure your valuables in your hotel safe.
