Although roads can be narrow and unsigned, speed bumps are common, traffic is generally not congested, and drivers are courteous. It is important to note that traffic coming from the right has the right of way and that pedestrians always have the right of way when crossing the road, even when a car is exiting a roundabout.
To rent a car in Sint Maarten, drivers should be a minimum of 21 years old and hold a valid domestic driving license from their country of residence.
