Road traffic

The network of roads and highways has a total length of 1,000 km. For each of the country's 106,537 inhabitants, this corresponds to 9.39 meters. This puts Aruba in 54th place in the global ranking. However, the country's population density must also be taken into account, which is relatively high at around 595 inhabitants per km². The higher the population density of a country, the shorter the average distance traveled. In Aruba, traffic drives on the right-hand side of the road, i.e. people drive in the right-hand lane and overtake on the left. Oncoming traffic comes toward you on the left side. Here you can also find an overview of all countries with left-hand traffic.
