Traffic Tips (3)

Beware of speeding scooters...

Athens is over run with motor scooters and many of them are driven by drivers who know one speed only - flat out! They will come up behind you in alleyways and in the very narrow sidestreets around the Plaka and you need to be quick to get out of the way. Keep as far as you can to the side of the road when walking in these areas if you value your life.

Roads & Theft

ROADS: The highways that link various cities are paved and most have two lanes. Since Greece is mainly a mountainous country, the roads area windy, twisty and need careful drivers.

BREAKDOWNS & THEFT: The Greek automobile association (ELPA) offers road assistance service reciprocal to your own road insurance scheme. If you are amember of a European road assistance service, you will be covered. Just bring your own vehicle assistance booklet with you.

Like any country, Greece also suffers from theft. Car radios are easily picked up and find their way to the Monastiraki flea market on Sunday. Cover up your car radio or install a removable radio. Leave your car totally empty and park it on a brightly lit street at night or in a guarded or closed off car park. Lock it up and you will be just fine.

Oh my... the traffic is...

Oh my... the traffic is horrible. And most people drive like car thiefs. Make sure you buckle up!!! The cab driver will most likely be offended. But rather that then your life, huh? If you're gonna stay within the inner city you can use the superb new underground system instead. Very nice, functional and tidy!
