How fast can you drive on the roads in Chile?
It depends on where you are driving.
The maximum driving speed in the city is 60 km/hr (38 mph) and sometimes only 50 km/hr (31 mph).
On highways across Chile, you can usually drive 120 km/hr (75 mph).
On rural roads, 100 km/hr (62 mph) is allowed unless otherwise posted.
You should always look for a posted speed limit sign as those will take precedence over the general rules above.
Be sure to drive within the posted speed limits since the Chilean police (Carabineros) are often out enforcing these laws.
If you are caught speeding, don’t try to bribe a Carabinero. The Chilean police force is proud of its honesty and integrity. Attempting to bribe will just get you in more trouble.
