Road traffic

The network of roads and highways has a total length of 440 km. For each of the country's 3,198 inhabitants, this corresponds to 137.59 meters. This puts Falkland Islands in 1st place in the global ranking. However, it is also important to note the country's population density, which is very low at around 0 inhabitants per km². Like this, disproportionately long distances generally have to be covered to reach the more remote parts of the country. On the Falkland 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. This regulation was enforced in January 1st, 1970. Here you can also find an overview of all countries with left-hand traffic.
