Built-up area start / Urban area When you drive to city the speed limit automatically drop down to 50km/h. In many places speed limit might be limited with traffic signs. Often to 40km/h or even lower to 30km/h, but also 60km/h is possible in city areas. When urban area ends the limit is 80km/h.

Motorway Motorway is the biggest highway type in Finland. Summer time the limit might be even 120km/h, but winter time limits are max. 100km/h. Driving on a motorway is only allowed for motorpowered vehicles that can drive atleast 50km/h or faster. You are not allowed to stop, park, reverse or make a u-turn. If you missed the exit, continue to next exit out from motorway and maybe there is possible to turn back safely.

Driver who join to motorway have yield drivers already on a motorway. To make safe joining, speed up you speed to max. limit on acceleration lane and don't change the lane before you drive same speed with otheres. Don't slow down on a motorway, but drive steady speed. If you don't want to drive maximium speed, it is best to drive same speed with trucks and busses = 80-90km/h. Before you exit out, change to slow down lane and there you can slow down your speed. Weathers might in Finland might be difficult in winter time - drive suitable situation speed in snow blizzard.
