Knowing the traffic regulations for the country you are driving in is absolutely vital for personal and public safety. These must be carefully considered, as they very often differ from those you may be used to in your country of origin.
Other things to take into account when driving in Greece:
Note: Petrol stations may be difficult to find outside Athens; many stations close at 20:00.
Greece has two toll roads, leading from Athens to Thessaloniki (E75) and Athens to Kalamata (E65). Payment is made en route at tolling stations.
The Hellenic Ministry of Transport and Communication is the overseeing body for transport safety and implementing national transport policies.
The Road Traffic Police Division at the Hellenic Police Force Headquarters is responsible for implementing necessary road safety and preventive measures at a national level.
