Anyone have any NYC freeway pics? They're not the busiest, since they only have 3 lanes each way in almost every case, but for that same reason, they're congested like crazy.

I think Southern California Car density pretty much puts them ahead of busiest highway!

I am also her to point out that Brazil Sao Paolo has one of the worlds biggest car congestions in the world! Including highways that have been describe as one of the busiest in the world.


San Juan Puerto rico is the 3rd country in the world with more cars per square mile in the world! Expresso de las americas register about 50,000 cars in a 4 mile strech!

The 401 is widely considered to be North America's busiest highway, with an estimated Annual Average Daily Traffic (AADT) of over 425,000 in 2004, between the Weston Road and Highway 400 interchanges in Toronto. This surpasses the Santa Monica Freeway in Los Angeles, and several Interstate freeways in Houston, Texas. Due to its triple use as the main trade, commuting and recreational corridor in Ontario, 24-hour traffic volumes can exceed the 500,000 level on some days. The just-in-time inventory systems of the highly integrated auto industry in Michigan and Ontario have made the highway the busiest truck route in North America. Highway 401 also includes the continent's busiest multi-structure bridge at Hogg's Hollow in Toronto (four structures for the highway's four roadway beds).

The 401 is the most important highway in Canada, as it connects the populous Southern Ontario region with Quebec and Michigan, while also connecting to most other major highways in the province. The highway also serves as the principal connection to Montreal and points east, including New England, becoming Autoroute 20 at the Quebec border. The border crossing at Windsor and Detroit is the busiest trade crossing in the world, and although the 401 itself does not physically extend the last few kilometres into Detroit, it is the only route from Toronto to Windsor and on to Interstate 75. A future expansion of the Windsor-Detroit border crossing, which will include a freeway bypass of the existing Highway 3, may result in Highway 401 having a direct freeway link to the border. Some 40 % of Canada-US trade travels the highway, which is one-third of Canada's foreign trade, and 4 % of all US foreign trade.

I know the 401 is very wide, and is very congested, but counting on/off ramps and merging lanes don't count in width.
Ofcourse, almost every major city in the world has worst traffic in general--than Toronto. I'm just talking about one highway. My numbers weren't really going up either.

Fine, if on-off ramps don't count--I guess 19 lanes then.
