Previous hints
The maximum allowed speed in the territory of settlements is 70 km/h, and on country roads it is allowed to increase the speed up to 120 km/h. The maximum permitted speed is usually mentioned on road signs; it is recommended to follow the rules because the speed of vehicles is strictly monitored in Chile.
The police are always very polite when speaking to drivers, especially to foreign ones. In no case should drivers argue and try to convince police officers not to issue a fine – in Chile such actions will certainly be interpreted as an attempt to give a bribe. You should do as the police tell you and provide them with all necessary documents at first request.
The cost of fuel is quite high in the country and is usually US$1.5 per liter. In addition to the unleaded petrol, drivers can often buy diesel fuel at local petrol stations.
