Driving in Italy is generally comparable to driving in the UK and the rest of Western Europe. Be sure not to obstruct passing lanes and to turn onto the right side of the road when exiting fuel stations, car parks and the like. Speed limits are 80mph (130kph) on motorways, 68mph (110kph) on dual carriageways and 31mph (50kph) on urban streets; these limits are reduced by 6-12mph (10-20kph) in wet conditions. Seatbelts are compulsory for drivers and all passengers. Street parking laws are strict and rigorously enforced. Be prepared for potentially hazardous winter conditions on roads to the north and west of Turin, even in the late autumn and spring months.
