Amsterdam by Car
Every year, approximately one million visitors are welcomed in Amsterdam by car. There are many paths entering separate districts of the city, all connected to the A10. This is the main ring road, which loops around the city of Amsterdam.
Crowded City Center
Within the city center, streets are quite narrow and crowded with pedestrians and cyclists. When Amsterdam was built, they did not take the number of cars into account driving around these days. Therefore it is quite difficult for foreigners to get around the city by car. Under Dutch law, all drivers and passengers must wear seatbelts. It is prohibited to drive while using a hand-held mobile phone or similar device. Car seats or appropriate restraints are compulsory for children. Motorcyclists must wear a helmet. There are also strict laws about driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
