Driving in Belgium is deceptively easy (and fun).
As pleasant and uncongested as the rolling roads may appear – Beware! – lurking around every turn (and always on the right hand side of the road) is a hidden danger that you must be fully prepared to stop.
Only these triangular Xs indicating an intersection is just up ahead …
And at which the “rule of the right” prevails.
The “rule of the right” gives priority to the driver entering the intersection to your right. If the intersection is clear – no worries – speed right ahead through. If a car on the left arrives simultaneously at the intersection at the same time – also no worries (and trust me) – you have priority as the car on the right.
As crazy as the system may at first appear:
It makes sense on roads that are, more times than not, relatively traffic free.
