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.

      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

      The numbers shown here for traffic on this network seem reasonable for cars and trucks (if by vehicle) as the regions has around 200,000 residents.
      However, 46,634 for buses???  Is that the number of buses or the number of riders?  Even at 30 riders per bus that is almost 1600 buses.  That's a lot of buses.
      How to read these numbers?
      Thanks!

      Hi there
      I recently installed SC4 Deluxe on my lap with Windows 10 via Steam. I'm starting a new city and I currently don't see any cars on the streets.
      Is this because a bug? I've got about 1000 sims there
