    vehicle traffic

    The police imposed a curfew in our area and all roads were closed to vehicle traffic.



    I know (Roads were closed to vehicles), but what does (roads were closed to vehicle traffic) here.

    Could you help me?

    Re: vehicle traffic

    Vehicle functions as an adjective. It tells us what kind of traffic:

    Ex: ...roads were closed to traffic, both pedestrian traffic and vehicle traffic.

    Ex: ...roads were closed to traffic, only to vehicle traffic.

    Ex: ...roads were closed to vehicle traffic, not to pedestrian traffic.
