Is there a traffic data layer from OSM? We use mapbox with a python application and would like to overlay historical traffic data for our use-case.

How do we access OSM traffic data? More specifically, we're looking for traffic density data with LineString geometry. I'd appreciate it if someone can point us in the right direction.

OSM has no traffic density data, neither current nor historic.

Any other sources you'd recommend checking out for traffic data?

In some countries this data, at least for major roads, is available as open data. However this would require a lot of research, and putting in work to convert whatever format the data comes in into something that you can use. Alternatively, you can license proprietary data sets from suppliers like TomTom.

Thanks. Prefer open data solution. I am looking for US Traffic data.
