Nevis used to be a British colony, and so people drive on the left hand side of the road, and the one roundabout (traffic circle or rotary) is navigated in a clockwise direction. Drivers from the US may need some time to get used to these differences. The island is so small that it is possible to reach any destination in under half an hour, so why bother rushing?

The overall standard of driving in Nevis is probably no better or worse than it is in London, but unlike London, visitors may encounter a herd of goats or sheep in the middle of the road when they least expect it!

Sometimes visitors may also encounter one of the island's Mack trucks during your stay. These trucks are intimidating enough on a three-lane highway in the US; on the narrow roads of Nevis they appear especially large and noisy.
