    Yes, you can but if you can post an example sentence it would help us check if you are using it correctly.

    Re: busy

    It can mean many people, on a shopping street for example or it can talk about traffic. Both are possible.

    thanks.
    you can also say that "the phone line is busy", right?
    when you go to a public restroom and the cabin used to deliver the #2 is "occupied", can I also say that it's "busy"?
    thanks.
