Travel Infomation Description

Road Conditions and Safety: Roads in Montenegro are not up to U.S. standards, especially in rural areas. Roads leading to Montenegro?s coastal areas are in better condition but are overcrowded during summer season. Drivers can be reckless and aggressive, and accidents are frequent.

Dangerous areas for road travel include a road through the Moraca Canyon, north of Podgorica. This twisting, two-lane road is especially overcrowded in the summer and is the site of frequent rockslides. In the winter, the Moraca Canyon and northern parts of Montenegro are covered with snow, which may slow traffic and make the road hazardous.

It?s common for Montenegrin drivers to attempt to pass on winding roads and hills.

Traffic Laws:

  • The use of seat belts is mandatory for all passengers.
  • Cell phone usage while driving is prohibited.
  • Vehicle lights must be switched on at all times while driving.
  • Right turns on red lights are strictly forbidden, unless a distinct green arrow is seen.
  • At unmarked intersections, the right of way is always given to the vehicle entering from the right.
  • Each vehicle must have a reflective fluorescent vest to be used in the event of an emergency road stop, as well as a European car accident report form.
  • Children 5 years-old and under must use a safety seat attached to a vehicle safety belt.
  • Vehicles must have winter tires and carry snow chains between November 15 and March 30.
  • Pedestrians crossing in designated crosswalks have the right of way. Drivers must stop.
  • The blood alcohol limit in Montenegro is .03 percent, less than half the legal limit in the United States.

Taxis: Metered taxi service is safe, although foreigners are sometimes charged higher rates. Taxis generally do not pick up passengers on the street and must be ordered by phone or SMS.

Public Transportation: Trains, buses, and ferries often use aging and poorly-maintained equipment.

Roadside assistance is available by dialing 19807, +382 (0)20 234 467 or +382 (0)20 234 999. Other local emergency numbers are police: 122; fire department: 123; and ambulance: 124. 

See our road safety page for more information. Also, we suggest that you visit the website of Montenegro?s National Tourism Organization and the Auto-moto Association of Montenegro, the national authority responsible for road safety.

AVIATION SAFETY OVERSIGHT: As there is no direct commercial air service to the United States by carriers registered in Montenegro, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has not assessed the Government of Montenegro?s Civil Aviation Authority for compliance with International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) aviation safety standards. Further information may be found on the FAA?s safety assessment page.

Maritime Travel: Mariners planning travel to Montenegro should also check for U.S. maritime advisories and alerts. Information may also be posted to the U.S. Coast Guard homeport website, and the NGA broadcast warnings.
