Traffic Census Program
Traffic Counts (a.k.a. Traffic Volumes) are for the State Highway System only (in various formats).
Highways are signed as Interstate, California State Route, or United States Route. See examples below:
Traffic count information for city and county streets may be found at the city Traffic Engineering or Public Works Department, or the Community Development Office in the area where the street is located.
Caltrans Traffic Counts are summarized annually into four categories:
Traffic Volumes: Annual Average Daily Traffic (AADT)
For ALL vehicles on CA State Highways.
