    Traffic/ Expect

    Can we say
    There is no traffic on this road these days.(= Not so many cars use this road these days)
    How can we say 'I expected you to be happy with your results' in another way.

    Thanks in advance
    Christin

    I'm not a teacher.

    Traffic can be people or cars, but since we usually assume that traffic is describing the movement of cars on a road, then we can assume that you mean there aren't any cars on the road.

    For your second problem, you can merely say, "I thought you'd be happy with your results."

    Gnome is correct, but you will occasionally hear people say this when there is very little traffic on the road. It is unlikely to be misunderstood.

    Christin, please open separate threads for different questions in future. If discussions start, the responses to more than one question in a single thread can become confusing.
