Road traffic

The network of roads and highways has a total length of 576 km. For each of the country's 102,146 inhabitants, this corresponds to 5.64 meters. This puts Jersey in 98th place in the global ranking. However, it is also important to note that the country's population density is extremely high at around 854 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.
