Road traffic

The network of roads and highways has a total length of 576 km. For each of the country's 101,476 inhabitants, this corresponds to 5.68 meters. This puts Jersey in 99th place in the global ranking. However, it is also important to note the country's population density, which is extremely high at around 848 inhabitants per km². With so many people in such a relatively small area, longer driving distances are rare. In Jersey, 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.
