Speed limits in Tanzania are typically 40-50 km/h (25-31 mph) in urban areas and 80 km/h (50 mph) on rural roads, unless otherwise signed. In practice, however, many drivers find themselves reaching a maximum speed of around 60 km/h (37 mph) on paved roads and 25 km/h (15 mph) on gravel roads.

Fixed speed cameras are uncommon, but traffic police carry out many roadside patrols.

Prices fluctuate but tend to be around 2,200 TZS (0.95 USD) for a liter of gasoline or diesel, which is 3.59 USD a gallon.
