The standard legal limits, which may be varied by signs, for private vehicles are as follows:

  • 60 km/h inside villages and cities
  • 90 km/h on the open road
  • 110 km/h on highways in Armenia

At the beginning of each town/village, there will be a sign with the town’s name. The cameras are always disclosed by signs but they’re easy to miss. Keep an eye on your odometer and pay attention to your speed when entering new towns.

Tip 3: Avoid Parking Fines

In the capital city of Armenia, Yerevan, red dotted lines indicate paid parking. The first 5 minutes are free and after that, you’ll be fined. Pay from your phone or at one of the payment machines. Parking is free in Yerevan from midnight to 9AM.
