General Tips:

  • Roads are generally in excellent condition, but be mindful of ongoing construction as Doha is a rapidly developing city.
  • Navigation apps like Google Maps or Waze can be beneficial for real-time traffic updates and directions.
  • Be wary of aggressive driving behaviors, like sudden lane changes or tailgating. Stay calm and maintain a safe driving distance.
