Default Car light at night

Dear friends
all though I took this pictures some time back, these are really my first ever pictures of this kind of night shoots. I am still wondering what I should try to achieve in this kind of pictures. some thing like all moving cars but just one standing so that it gives more relative velocity effect or what ever... Please let me know what you think

Thanks

u gotta get a tripod, get a longer exposure and get the ambient light to come out and the cars will be a really kewl line of lights.

It's a good first attempt but the shots are too distracting with elements along the sides of the roads. You need to clearly illustrate the movement of the cars and nothing else (if this is your intended subject).

The pictures also don't look very sharp.
