The National Statistics office of Malta issued a News Release on the 2nd August 2013, confirming that as at end June 2013:
- 318,720 licensed motor vehicles are on the island. This is an increase of almost 1% from the previous quarter. The trend is that this increases yearly.
- 416,055 inhabitants live in Malta, according to the last census of 2011 and this number includes children.
- 76% of the population has a motor vehicle. This means that there are 3 vehicles for every 4 people.
If we had to line up all the vehicles one after the other we would need 1,912km of parking space (assuming that each vehicle can fit in a standard 6m parallel parking space). Compare this to the total length of our road network.
