while we are checking your file

here is some more troubleshooting info:

CityTraffic is based on the simulation close to real life physical properties so all dimensions and settings need to be physically correct
Some common setup problems:

* incorrect units and scale (e.g a bus cannot be 100 meters long)
* there must be a road for vehicles to drive on
* the road system need to be preferably looped
* the roads are too narrow
* pivot point is outside of the mesh
* the rig must be applied in right size and cannot be scaled
* incorrect speed parameters (of maneuver and normal speed) which are impossible to replicate in real life
