Saw this posted elsewhere

It is one of the world's busiest highways;[6] a 2008 analysis stated that the annual average daily traffic (AADT) count between Weston Road and Highway 400 in Toronto was approximately 450,000,[2] while a second study estimates that over 500,000 vehicles travel that section on some days.[5] This makes it the busiest roadway in North America, surpassing the Santa Monica Freeway in Los Angeles and I-75 in Atlanta.

As for whether it is the busiest in the world. Statistically don't think anyone knows what it is. The 401 would be the odds on favourite, though.
