The best way would probably be to install GPS transmitters on all vehicles, and then write some code to plot them all on a map, but the price and privacy issues would probably prove this too difficult.
A second option would be to point video cameras at a stretch of road and then use some image recognition software to get the information you need.
Another option would be to get a group of small children, have them play the game where they pick a color or model of car and count how many they say, and then just tally their results.
