Slovenia has a low crime rate. Travelers should, however, take normal precautions, as they are sometimes the targets of pickpockets and purse-snatchers.

The loss or theft abroad of a U.S. passport should be reported immediately to the local police and the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate. U.S. citizens may refer to the Department of State's pamphlet A Safe Trip Abroad for ways to promote a more trouble-free journey. The pamphlet is available by mail from the Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C. 20402, via the Internet at http://www.access.gpo.gov/su_docs, or via the Bureau of Consular Affairs home page at http://travel.state.gov.

Slovenia has a well-developed road network, safe for travel. Highways connect all major cities and towns as well as neighboring countries and are clearly sign-posted. As the number of cars in Slovenia continues to rise, roads are becoming more heavily congested during the weekends on major routes and during rush hour. Parking is difficult and can be expensive in the city center. Traffic moves on the right; road signs and traffic rules are similar to those used throughout Europe. Third-party liability insurance is required for all vehicles; coverage is purchased locally. Travelers should be alert to aggressive drivers both in cities and on highways. Many of the serious accidents in Slovenia occur as a result of high-speed driving. Emergency roadside help and information may be reached by dialing 987 for vehicle assistance and towing services, 112 for an ambulance or fire brigade, and 113 for police.

U.S. visitors and U.S. residents in Slovenia must be in possession of both a valid U.S. driverís license and an international driverís license if they wish to drive in Slovenia. This will allow them to drive for a maximum of one year, after which residents of Slovenia are required to obtain a Slovenian driverís license. The speed limit is 50kph/30mph in residential areas and 130kph/78mph on highways. Motorists are required to have their headlights on during the daytime and drivers and passengers must wear seat belts. For additional information, visit the web site of the U.S. Embassy in Slovenia at http://www.usembassy.si.
