Driving in Kazakhstan requires vigilance and adherence to road rules. While major cities like Almaty and Nur-Sultan have well-maintained roads, rural areas may have uneven surfaces. Speed limits vary from 60-90 km/h (37-56 mph) in cities to 110-130 km/h (68-81 mph) on highways. Seat belts are mandatory, and road signs are often in Kazakh and Russian. In winter, prepare for snow and icy roads. Gasoline is readily available, and cash and credit cards are accepted at fuel stations. Remember to drive defensively, be cautious of local driving habits, and keep your vehicle well-maintained.
