Traffic laws in the Netherlands

The rules here are pretty standard: Passing must be done on the left.

Mobile phone use is allowed only with a hands-free device — just holding a phone, even if it’s not being used, is illegal.

The driver and all passengers must wear seatbelts.

Drivers should be aware of cyclists, and know that two cyclists can ride abreast of each other.

Vehicles coming from the right have priority, and buses have priority when pulling out. Trams have priority, except where noted.
