Road traffic

The network of roads and highways has a total length of 200 km. For each of the country's 31,122 inhabitants, this corresponds to 6.43 meters. This puts British Virgin Islands in 85th place in the global ranking. However, the country's size and population density of around 207 inhabitants per km² must also be taken into account. Countries with fewer inhabitants in the same or even larger area naturally achieve quite different values here and have to connect remote areas to the transport network despite a smaller population. On the British Virgin Islands, left-hand traffic is the rule on the roads, i.e. you drive in the left lane and overtake on the right. Oncoming traffic comes to meet you on the right side. Here you can also find an overview of all countries with left-hand traffic.
