Local Speed Limits
The speed limit in Greece according to the Road Traffic Code is 50 kilometers inside the city and in residential areas, 80 kilometers on expressways and 100-120 on motorways. Always keep the speed limits listed on the signs along the road on which you are driving. The speed limit is controlled in many areas by satellite and camcorder, so be careful.
We recommend and advise all occupants of the rented cars to wear seat belts. Children should sit in child seats, which you can request from our staff and should be restrained by safety belts. Despite technological advances in car safety, particularly with the use of airbags, it is still necessary to use safety belts. The Traffic Police carries out rigorous checks on the use of safety belts and imposes corresponding fines up to the removal of the driving license.

Know the traffic signs and how to read maps
The Olympics have resulted in Greece having today a major road network of European standards, which is constantly expanding. Most signs are in Greek and English so they can give the right instructions. Significant corrections have also been made in terms of road quality, lighting, electronic signage as well as tunnel construction. Auto Moto Lesvos provides road maps or GPS for your convenience.
Use Mobile Phone
The use of mobile phone while driving is forbidden, explicitly or indirectly, in all EU countries, as it has been proven to increase the risk of fatal accidents fivefold.
In Greece, the use of mobile phone is only permitted when used with audio wireless communication or Bluetooth. Hands-free equipment is forbidden.
Across Europe, as in Greece, the emergency call number is 112 (from a mobile phone) and you can call for free when there is an emergency.
Tips for eco driving
Avoid depressing the throttle too much and prefer to push it with your foot as little as possible: the more the pedal sinks, the more fuel is consumed, regardless of the engine speed.
• Make rapid gear changes to high gears and delay changes to the small gear ratios (in other words drive as much as possible with fourth or fifth).
• Avoid any unnecessary deceleration, braking or changing gear.
