    Question "Traffic" as plural.

    All the traffic have stopped!

    Please is the above sentence correct?
    I came across the sentence and was wondering if 'traffic' could ever have a count usage. Thanks in advance.

    Re: "Traffic" as plural.

    No. "Traffic" is uncountable so it takes the singular.

    All the traffic has stopped.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
