- Stay Left. The Biggest Difference for International Drivers.
Australia is very strict on speed limits. Unlike some countries like the United States or Germany, drivers are not encouraged to go with the flow of traffic if it results in speeding. If you or a group of cars are detected speeding you will face a fine and potential loss of licence depending on how far you are over the designated speed limit.
Hidden and fixed cameras are often used in Australia, as well as aerial cameras and manual speed cameras by highway patrolmen.
It is important to note that Australia uses the metric system, so all speeding signs are in kilometres per hour, not miles per hour.
- Pass on the Right, Stay Left
When driving on multi-lane roads, highways and freeways in Australia, always keep left unless overtaking. Fines can apply for vehicles violating this rule in most states.
- Traffic signals and Roundabouts
Traffic signals are generally the same in other countries like the United States. A key difference is it is illegal to turn left on a red traffic signal.
In most states it is also illegal to do a U-turn at a traffic signal unless otherwise signed.
Australia does not have 4 way stop signs, but does often use roundabouts or 2 way stop signs at intersections with no traffic lights.
For roundabouts, give way to cars coming from the right. If there are two or more lanes, lines and directions should be clearly marked, but as a rule take the left lane for left, or the right lane for right, and either lane to go straight.
At 2 way stops signs, you must come to a complete stop and give way to any oncoming traffic.
Pedestrians always have the right of way.
