Driving in Tasmania
Australians drive on the left, which can be disconcerting for visitors not accustomed to this. Roads are generally good and major routes well signposted. Speed limits and distances are expressed in kilometres and vary substantially from 50 kph in residential and heavy traffic areas to 110 kph on highways/freeways (please follow signage for speed limits). Drink driving is a serious offence and heavily policed. Drivers can be stopped anywhere at random and subjected to a breath analysis test. The legal limit in Australia is a blood alcohol content of 0.05%.
The Road Safety Advisory Council for Tasmania provides some very helpful information for those unfamiliar with Tasmania's roads www.rsac.tas.gov.au.
