What is Average Daily Traffic Volume?  Average daily traffic volume is the number of vehicles that pass a particular point during a specified day and/or time period.

How is it calculated? There are different methods used for counting traffic volumes.

1) Machine/Automatic Counting (imbedded in the roadway or laying a top the roadway)

2) Manual/Observation Count (an individual manually counts the traffic)

A simple and useful way to determine how busy a particular road may be is simply by measuring the volume of traffic that takes place on that road on any given day.

Why does it matter?  It matters because knowing the traffic volumes on major and surrounding roads in Elk Grove may positively or negatively affect our movement to and from a particular destination.  It is very helpful for us to know which roads are most congested so that we may choose to use an alternate (safer and/or less congested) route.
