Rabat - Driving on Moroccan roads is a big risk and quite a challenge. In some foreign advisories made available to travelers, it is stated clearly: "Think twice before deciding to drive in Morocco: it is risky and dangerous, local drivers take unnecessary risks, cyclists and pedestrians are careless and the roads in some parts of the back country are atrocious."
