Heavy Traffic is the twenty-fifth studio album by English rock band Status Quo. Published in 2002, it hit #15 on the UK charts. The album was released following the reunion of Francis Rossi with writing partner Bob Young, who co-wrote many of the band's songs between 1968 and 1980. This is the first album to feature drummer Matt Letley.
