State Highway have widely different static and dynamic characteristics. Traffic is essentially consists of bicycles, two-wheelers, three-wheelers, Light commercial vehicle, cars and trucks this work aims to study of traffic flow on Indian highways by evaluating Passenger Car Unit (PCU) of different vehicle categories at different section of highways around Padra-Jambusar Vadodara. Our aim is to work out the passenger car unit Dynamic PCU for different types of vehicles under traffic conditions. The capacity of highways also increases with use of shoulder area and its positive effect on PCU value for type of vehicle increases with increases lane width. The relationship between the volume and speed at different highway section developed a second-degree curve. This relationship is used to calculate capacity of highways.
