NO 1.2 million vehicule per day is for the whole motorway

Peripherique is around 300,000 vehicules per day in the busiest section
but a similar thread was already created.

These numbers are BACK AADT. I'm not sure what they mean, should i add the AHEAD AADT to them?

That would make the US 101 647.000 and the I-405 almost 800.000
That sounds kind of unlikely to me. You need about 50 lanes to process so much traffic.
Yes I read that back in 2002 when Ventura County was planning to wide 101 Freeway from 6 lanes to 12 lanes to handle the traffics and rebuild Santa Clara River Bridge between Ventura and Oxnard. It said so on Ventura County Star newspaper. I looked it up to show the reference but it is not there because it is old news. I am not sure if it is still busist by now but last time I went there to see my old friends and traffics got much worse than did in 2002. I believe it is still busiest by now.

^ Interesting; could you give us the link, please? I'm wondering what the amount of traffic is on the A1 and A2 where they are united (between Härkingen and Wiggertal).

German motorways are not so busy. I heard the busiest motorway in the Rhine-Ruhr area has only 140.000 kfz/tag (AADT). that is really not much for such an urban motorway.

Here (2.3mb) you can find a document which shows a map with AADT on page 21. The AADT for the stretch you mentioned is 77'900.

Around Metropolian area's, motorways are mostly extremely busy, comparable to midsize to large American cities traffic.

But for example, Germany, has good urban transport, so not EVERYBODY needs a car to go to work (like Los Angeles).

Where they use mass-transit a lot, is in eastern asia.

I guess it's only a small portion near Praha. The D1 near Praha is 2x3 lanes.

Freeway 18 in San Juan,Puerto Rico-about 300,000 vehicles daily

San Juan population-430,000

We have a really good metro here but since it was finished in 2004 it only has 16 stations and people here use their cars too much so traffic congestion here is horrible
