They're there alright. They're just not as many. The Moroccan motorway with the highest AADT (A3 Rabat-Casablanca) only reaches about 40.000. But that section is only 2x2 and is to be upgraded to 2x3 within three years.

As for the other motorways, most of them have just been inaugurated (A1 Rabat-Kenitra section only opened in 1995) and it takes time to learn someone why they should pay an extra fee just to drive their car somewhere. More and more are learning about the security benefits of grade-separated, one-way traffic.

I've never seen a Dutch road that quiet

However, the Moroccan economy is emerging, so traffic will increase in the future. Better have an Autoroute now than when it's too late.

As soon as the port in Tanger is finished, i expect a surge in the amount of traffic. Especially truck traffic that is. Goods will be travelling by road from Tangier to Rabat/Casablanca and other major cities. Much of the traffic now is concentrated between Rabat/Casa.

Since the N- roads in Morocco are pretty good, i dont think the amount of traffic on the highways will ever reach Dutch standards. Only if the N-roads get clogged, people will take the highway, otherwise....why should they pay money while they can get to their destination for free.
