Traffic Jam In Africa

Please view it in full resolution to see all the custom lotting and MMPing before you cast your vote!

A scene from an upcoming update for my CJ, True Earth.

There's plenty of crowded streets across the globe, but not many get as busy as those of Africa. From the crowded streets of Nairobi, Kinshasa, and Lagos in this case, just about every major African city is constantly buzzing with thousands of people and cars, and the ongoing flow of activity never seems to cease.  Street vendors and hawkers add to the traffic even more, and once you get stuck in traffic it can take an hour just to travel a couple of blocks. As you can see in this picture as well, markets will occasionally spill over into the streets, blocking off important travel routes and causing the congestion to intensify. In order for most people to just make it across town, the yellow 'danfos' (buses) that you see everywhere are a vital part of city life - but they in turn cause the traffic to worsen even more, so much so that they were actually recently banned in various places across the city.

      Does anyone know what dictates the volume of through traffic and if it's moddable?  I'm talking about the amount of cars that enter your city from one direction and simply pass through to exit somewhere else.  I'm trying to set up a particular story where the region starts off sparsely populated and rarely traveled and the huge volume of through traffic really throws off the theme - turning my single national road connection into a traffic jam.

      Hello ST community,
      I will use this topic to show my upcoming, work in progress and finished mods for Cities: Skylines. Some may know, some may not - I make soviet style buildings and car models.
      Here is some showcase of my already made mods:
      Link to steam collection of my residential soviet buildings. Series 1-464LI
       
      Vehicle mods:
      Link to steam collection of my passenger cars mods
      Link to my steam collection of heavy land vehicles (buses, trucks)
       
      Here is link to my planned cars list in Google spreadsheet format
      Making of next car is currently not started yet. I will announce later what car it will be (French hatchback). 
      At the moment I make my 5 story soviet buildings (1-464LI) RICO compatible, it will feature left, middle and right (placement) sections.
       
      And last, I want to hear your opinions about car models triangle counts. ~2500 was chosen because of adding these cars to another city-builder game too. Choose acceptable triangle count for you. Multiple choice is allowed if e.g. acceptable is 500-3000

      Okay, I have been using this mod as a quick fix to residential zones getting dilapidated due to long commute times.
       This mod forces residents to work from home rather than to use transit networks to get to work. This is supposed to be a quick workaround to prevent the ZOT icon from popping up, but also preventing homes from looking like crap. Only problem is that I don't get to see my roads and transit networks being used. Aside from mostly freight trucks, a lot of roads just look empty, especially my highway networks.
      Obviously I could just improve my knowledge and skills by creating more efficient transit layouts. But I'm more interested in creating cities and regions for aesthetic appeal rather than proper functionality. I also don't know if I even have the patience to sit through countless tutorials about laying out road and highway networks. Does anyone know of any mods that are similar to the one posted above? Anything that helps reduce traffic congestion and commute times, but doesn't prevent the transit networks from actually being used. Thanks.
