A very well exposed night shot.

Just a couple of suggestions.

The focus is on the foreground, where there's little to see. I'd have gone for the car under the street light.

If the road isn't nusy, you could try merging 2 or more exposures. It's easy enough to do in Photoshop, if that's what you use.
You set the focus & exposure, then switch both to manual, so they don't change.
Take several pictures as traffic passes.
Put them all in PS on separate layers.
Change the blending mode for all layers, apart from background, to lighten.

Hey-presto, instant M25 during rush hour!! (That's a very busy motorway-cum-ring-road around London, in case you didn't know).

Good luck with that. If you didn't use a tripod, you will find they are not aligned properly, unless you have a very steady hand. You can get PS to do all the work. Just follow this tutorial.

And be sure to show us the results.
