So traffic jams are a rare sight in Lanzarote and if there is a build up of vehicles on the road, it tends to last a few minutes. If you have been visiting the island for a number of years you may have noticed the increase in the number of cars now on the roads but looking at a recent study it has declined slightly over the year. Although in November it increased by 87% compared to the previous month, the annual accumulated stands at 6,287 registrations, compared to 8,051 in the same period of 2018.
