motor vehicles? Are you restricting motorcycles from the list? I don’t understand what you’re asking us.

@stanleybmanly bicycle, horse, rickshaw, is what I was thinking of excluding. Motorcycle I guess would be included eventough I wasn’t thinking of it when I posted the OP.
Added: You answered it by the way.

I would most likely just say traffic. I might say traffic on the road, or motor vehicle traffic.

I think it was answered by @stanleybmanly They are all (a race car a 18 wheeler etc.) go under Motor Vehicles. When someone asks me what is the name of that (pointing at a car) I can’ say “traffic” or “Surface transit”
