Driving Information

ISLAND ROADS ARE VERY NARROW AND SOME SIGNS MAY BE UNFAMILIAR TO YOU - PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING IMPORTANT INFORMATION CAREFULLY

SPEED LIMIT The maximum speed limit in the island is 40mph. There are lower speed limits in some areas particularly in the main town, St.Helier, country villages and built up areas. Remember, however, that these are maximum speeds, not recommended speeds, and in many places lower speeds are necessary for safe driving.

 

FILTER IN TURN

 

FILTER IN TURN Some junctions may have a FILTER IN TURN sign on a lampost. Approach them with care.Take your turn with other vehicles in joining or crossing any stream of traffic. Priority should first be given to vehicles approaching from the RIGHT of your vehicle.
GREEN LANES Green Lanes are principally for the enjoyment of pedestrians, cyclists, horse riders and dog walkers. Motor vehicles should try to avoid using these lanes. The speed limit is 15 mph.
YELLOW LINES A wide yellow line painted transversely across the exit of a minor road means STOP and give way to traffic on the major road. A yellow arrow painted on the road gives warning of a wide yellow line ahead. A single yellow line painted along the side of a road parallel to the kerb means that vehicles can neither park, wait nor be left unattended there at ANY time.
TRAFFIC LIGHTS Traffic lights in the island change from RED to GREEN with NO AMBER in between.

You must be prepared to meet horses, cattle, cyclists, pedestrians, dog walkers and of course other drivers who may be as lost as you!  Most, but not all junctions are signposted and whilst at some junctions there may be convex mirrors to help motorists, please remember they may make vehicles look further away than they actually are and visibilty may still be very poor. Please take care at all times and drive courteously. Thank you.
