The Highway Code (Malta)

The Highway Code is the official road user guide for Malta.


The Highway Code is published by the Maltese government and is their official road user guide. The guide contains road use rules for pedestrians, cyclists and automobile users. The manual is available in both English and Maltese and as a printed publication and online.[1]

Influence on road safety

A motoring commentator for the Maltese The Sunday Times argued that roads might be safer in Malta if a higher priority is given to enforcing the rules in The Highway Code and that higher penalties for contravention should be dispensed.[2]

Traffic stop

A traffic stop, commonly called being pulled over, is a temporary detention of a driver of a vehicle by police to investigate a possible crime or minor violation of law.

Traffic violations reciprocity

Under traffic violations reciprocity agreements, non-resident drivers are treated like residents when they are stopped for a traffic offense that occurs in another jurisdiction. They also ensure that punishments such as penalty points on one's license and the ensuing increase in insurance premiums follow the driver home. The general principle of such interstate, interprovincial, and/or international compacts is to guarantee the rule "one license, one record."
