They are programmed to attempt to drive around anything that is in their way, but this can be a problem for players when they approach roadblocks. When driving into intersections, the AI may suddenly turn, forcing oncoming players to dodge them. The traffic AI is also known to blindly change lane on multiple lane streets/roads.
After the game patch on September 18, 2012, traffic was removed from Class Restricted events, and reduced for regular events. This allows for class restricted single player races to be uninterrupted by traffic and traffic magnets, which is great for practicing tracks. Only two drag races feature traffic, and some vehicles appear exclusively in those races.
