It is a highly developed country doing everything trying to do everything the European way though still lagging a little bit behind thus meaning that when you decide to drive in Morocco you are sure their standards do not vary so much.
Their roads are generally in good conditions compared to the general road network on the continent as a whole with modern highways linking to the major towns and cities like Casablanca, and Marrakesh. They also have very many dual carriageways linking to various other towns. Secondary routes in rural areas are often narrow and poorly paved with a smattering of potholes. Roads through the Rif and Atlas mountains are steep, narrow and winding. Maximum caution should be exercised when driving in the mountains. Driving standards are not up to European or USA standards. This is particularly true at dusk during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, when adherence to traffic regulations is lax, and from July to September when Moroccans resident abroad return from Europe by car in large numbers.

During the rainy season, it is a total mess as flash flooding is frequent and sometimes severe, washing away roads and vehicles in rural areas.
