Croatia Traffic Info

  • Drive carefully on the A1 Zagreb-Split-Ploče near the rest area Pristeg between Benkovac and Pirovac, there was a traffic accident there; traffic in direction Dubrovnik is moving slowly. There is a queue at the border crossings Kaštel and Plovanija in Istria: 3 km in direction Slovenia. There is a broken-down freight vehicle on the Krk bridge; traffic in both directions is moving slowly. The queue towards the interior of the country: 3 km, towards the island 1,5 km. Sections of the roads closed due to roadworks: -the DC29 from Novi Golubovec (DC29, DC35) -the DC502 Smilčić-Pridraga state road -ŽC5042 Višnjan-Tićan. Traffic is regulated by traffic signals/one road lane is free only: -on the DC1 state road on the section Sučević-Otrić in Otrić -on the DC1 state road on the section Jošani-Udbina-Ondić -on the state road DC2 in Vukovar, (Kudeljarska and Priljevo street) -on the state road DC206 Valentinovo-Petrovsko. With the sunny and dry weather, more and more cyclists and motorists are on the roads. Other vehicles (such as cars or trucks) should look carefully for bicyclists before turning left or right, merging into bicycle lanes and opening doors next to moving traffic. Check your mirrors and be aware of blind spots before turning. While at a stop sign or red light, make a complete stop in order to let bikers pass, and check for unseen riders. Respect the right of way of bicyclists because they are entitled to share the road with you. Cyclists are not immune to traffic violations: pay attention to red lights and practice arm signaling!
