<strong>AASHTO:</strong> The level of motor vehicle traffic on U.S. roads and streets grew 1.4 percent this year through August, the Federal Highway Administration said, as drivers accumulated 30.6 billion more vehicle miles than in the first eight months of 2016.

That also means traffic volume continues to set new highs since 2016 was a record-high year for the U.S. driving public and each month of 2017 has seen volume reach ever higher.

So far in 2017, the FHWA in its latest monthly “traffic volume trends” report estimated that U.S. drivers had accumulated nearly 2.148 trillion vehicle miles of travel through August.
