The 401 is the busiest in North America, not sure about the world.

From Wikipedia

"Today it is considered North America's busiest highway, with an estimated Annual Average Daily Traffic (AADT) over 425,000 in 2004, near the interchange with Highway 400. Due to its triple use as the main trade, commuting and recreational corridor in Ontario, many days spike well beyond the 500,000 level. The just-in-time inventory systems of the highly integrated auto industry in Michigan and Ontario have made the highway into the busiest truck route in North America. The 401 also includes the continent's busiest multi-structure bridge at Hogg's Hollow in Toronto (4 structures for the highway's 4 roadway beds)".

I wouldn't be surprised if it was the 401 (and it's only getting bigger/busier)...however, I think the Santa Monica Fwy is pretty busy.

It's taken from the official website, and besides, the statistics for the Santa Monica Fwy are from 1993 so...

The number is much higher than 363,000 now

Or we could use wikipedia which has the 2004 stats and claims the 401 to be the busiest.

Sure, but since when did Wikipedia know any better than the Ministry of Transportation in Ontario though?

I doubt that's the case here.
We all know websites are not to be trusted when it comes to statistics, simply because there are hundreds of different answers.
Works the same way with statistics related to population within a city, different opinions and statistics.
