Don't drive at night!!!! - Rule of Africa

Remember when in Mozambique to keep to the speed limit (120km) and slow down to 60km through villages. The speed limit is strictly enforced by police every day and the fine regardless is between R350 and R400 on the spot (ask for a receipt). If you do not have the cash they may confiscate your driving license until the fine is paid. Don't argue with the police and be friendly. Also rather give them your license than passport for obvious reasons.

Roadblocks are a regular occurrence and it is not uncommon to be stopped at some of these.
EVERYBODY MUST WEAR SEAT BELT.!!!!
