Traffic: question from curiosity

I listen intermittently to CBC radio mostly for the news, but the shoe dropped today: they do traffic, and there seems to be an awful lot of traffic given that most office people are still working from home (aren’t they?). I know there are a lot of jobs that can’t be done remotely, and there’s still trucking and commercial traffic, but are there really enough people moving around on the 9 to 5 to cause traffic jams?

Or is CBC simply giving their traffic guy something to do, noting accidents and so on? I’m not a driver, so I can’t judge.
