Post your full graphical settings.

You probably have the Night Shadows on High, turn them off as they are a performance killer and it looks quite ugly anyway.

Besides that, you should lower the sliders a bit to improve your framerate.

As last, if you have any mods installed, you could try to remove them as mods influence performance.

Yeah, indeed.

Lower the car density to 40 or something the other sliders at around 35 or something like that.

But most important, just completely turn those night shadows off!


Besides that, you could try the commandline switch to improve your performance.

And if really nothing helps, reinstall the game and use patch That's the best one performance-wise.
