What is up with the cars?

I believe this was mentioned not too long ago on a live stream of the game. When you are driving around, less cars will appear on the road just to prevent the roads from being too packed and congested. 

To me, it didn't seem like it was during game play at all. When you see them going through a cut-scene the streets look busy but outside of that, I just don't see a reason why they would reduce the amount of cars just for the sake of you driving your car.

Yeah it was indeed mentioned that the cars aren't as apparent when you are in a car. I am guessing this serves as not only a game mechanic (to make it easier to drive and get places) but also to reduce frame rate issues on current gen consoles.

They remove some of the cars on the roads as well as children NPC characters. If you look at some of the more recent footage, it isn't a bad thing. I think it was smart to do both.

For sure with the children. There was no way of avoiding accidents or players purposelessly targeting them for laughs. I didn't think the streets were too crowded though in terms of cars when you aren't in one.

I thought at first they did this for the sake of showing and testing the game but I looked into it more and the people who said they purposely remove a lot of the cars on the road is true. When you access your vehicle (get in or on it) you will notice a lot of cars seem to vanish but you will still see enough on the roads for it to feel lively.
