Road traffic

The network of roads and highways has a total length of 383 km. For each of the country's 47,606 inhabitants, this corresponds to 8.05 meters. This puts Saint Kitts and Nevis in 68th place in the global ranking. However, the country's size and population density of around 183 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. In Saint Kitts and Nevis, 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.
