What percentage of time are Brussels' cars not being used?

Brussels Institute for Statistics and Analysis (BISA) - Did you know? - 05/06/2019

Answer: 98%

According to Parking.brussels, the 486,000 cars registered in 2016 in the Brussels region spend very little time on the road.

A household uses its car on average for 35 minutes a day. The rest of the time, the car is stationary in one of the 265,000 on-street parking spaces or one of the 500,000 off-street parking spaces (private garages, public car parks, office and shop car parks, etc.)
