Analytics firm: Israel’s vehicular density one of the highest in the world

With some 3.75 million vehicles on its roads, Israel’s vehicular density is one of the highest in the world, according to the latest report by American analytics company Dun & Bradstreet.

Though it has fewer cars per capita than many countries in the OECD, its traffic density is 3.5 higher than the OECD average, the company says. This is a result of Israel’s population dispersal, lackluster public transportation and an insufficient rate of road construction.

D&B says some 283,000 cars were delivered in the first 11 months of the year.
