Asphalt 8: Airborne

Traffic appears in all maps, with the exception of French Guiana and Sector 8. They also usually don't appear in Elimination, Infected, Gate Drift, Time Attack, and Multiplayer events. Unlike the player-controlled vehicles, Traffic vehicles cannot think or move by themselves. If they stray from their course or are knocked down they will eventually re-spawn at their starting point. If racers aren't careful, however, they may crash into Traffic, causing their vehicle to wreck. Destroying Traffic completely is called Traffic Down (usually occurs when a player hits Traffic from behind), while simply brushing against Traffic is called Traffic Control. Driving extremely closely to Traffic without brushing against or hitting it while at high speeds is considered a Near Miss. Players may knock down Traffic during a wreck, but this does not count as a Traffic Down. However, if the car wreck touches a Traffic vehicle without damaging it, the player will perform a Traffic Control.

Traffic vehicles are either small four-door cars, pickup trucks, or large delivery trucks, with or without the box. Traffic in the tunnels are harder to avoid, and might not be seen until it's too late.

Tokyo

Traffic vehicles appear as small four-door cars and large blue buses in the city area, and delivery trucks as you enter the harbor. There is also a stationary bus which you can jump over via a ramp (not applicable in Tokyo Reverse). Some of the buses are always present even with traffic disabled except in Multiplayer races.

London has typical cars and limousines well as special double-decker buses and London Cabbies. Between the Championship Update and the Fifth Anniversary Update, a glitch had removed all traffic from London.

Alps

The Alps have typical cars, pickup trucks, and buses. Beware of avalanches, as they are hard to see through and raise the risk of of hitting Traffic.

Azure Coast

The Azure Coast has the regular cars and buses. One part of the track has racers pass through a trio of stationary buses, similar to that of Tokyo. In the Exclusive Metal Events, these buses are removed altogether.

San Diego Harbor

Traffic consists of armored vehicles and tanks, adding to the military atmosphere. Despite their appearance, these vehicles are just as easy to knock down.

Tenerife

Traffic includes cars, pickup trucks, buses, and delivery trucks.

Area 51

Traffic includes armored vehicles and tanks in the actual research base. Outside of that, normal traffic cars appear.

Rio de Janeiro

During multi-lap races, trams can appear on tram tracks and act as traffic vehicles. At the festival part of the track, there are interactive stationary buses (only in Ipanema Showdown and Rapido Park), even in Multiplayer races.

Patagonia

There is no unique traffic on this track.

Munich Subway

There is no unique traffic on this track, except for the trains which can only be Near Missed.

Asphalt Overdrive

Traffic plays an important role in Asphalt Overdrive. They can be taken down by steering your car and ramming their sides, making them spin out of control. They can add to your points and "Destruction" races require traffic Knockdowns. They can also be taken out by ramming their rear, but doing so will severely slow down your car. Attempting to rear ram a big vehicle (such as trucks) will wreck your car. A tip during loading times says "Don't feel guilty when you hit traffic. The traffic drivers are invincible!". Traffic varies from civilian 2-door or 4-door cars, to pickups, to vans, to trucks and buses.

Asphalt Nitro

Traffic works exactly the same as in Asphalt 8: Airborne.

Asphalt 9: Legends

Traffic appears in almost all maps and all game modes with the exception of some TLE's. Unlike Asphalt 8, Traffic vehicles are parked and do not drive on the roads. Hitting Traffic Vehicles is named Traffic Down and will award the player a small nitro boost. Barely passing Traffic vehicles is named Near Miss which will also award the player with a small nitro boost.

Trivia

  • At Tokyo, right after the starting line, there is a red bus which appears in all modes except Multiplayer. In the reverse version of the track there is a small ramp with three police cars lined up (giving players a chance of near misses or traffic knockdowns) which however still remains in Multiplayer.
  • Near the end of the second lap in the Alps, a group of traffic can be seen being caught in the path of an oncoming avalanche. Despite traffic being disabled for Multiplayer, this is still seen and players can drive through the traffic without being wrecked.
  • Rarely, traffic may spawn right in front of the player in Alps, instantly causing a wreck.
  • Before the Italy update, long time before in Asphalt Nitro's files there was a hidden car file named "car_traffic_car" along with the rest of the game's cars. Traffic now appears for the first time in the game, in Italy only though.
  • In Rome and Cairo, the Mopeds are not classified as Traffic vehicles but as a city objective
