The Most Common Mistakes Made By UK Drivers in Europe

For UK visitors, driving in Europe requires a cautious approach and plenty of preparation. Sensible motorists will recognise that accidents are more likely when driving on an unfamiliar road, and that this risk will increase considerably when also taking into account the differences that come with driving in another country.

Although driving in Europe is not significantly different from driving in the UK in most respects, it must still be remembered that each European nation has its own rules, regulations and motoring conventions that need to be memorised in order to stay safe out on the roads when travelling in the continent. Failure to properly learn European driving rules and norms could put yourself or others in danger, or put you at risk of being hit with legal action or a fine.

In a lot of instances, it can be the simplest things that catch drivers out when they are driving in Europe. Here, JMW’s Accidents Abroad team takes a look at the most common mistakes made by UK drivers in Europe - and how to avoid them.
