The Road Rules in Belgium are much alike the Dutch road rules.
The most important difference with the UK is of course the driving direction. As we drive on the left, drivers on the main land drive on the RIGHT!
The speed limits are also in kilometers per hour and not miles. 1 km = 0.62 miles hence 50 km/h = 30mi/h
Make sure you know this by heart!
