"Least busy" stats are not available for minor roads (B and unclassified), as the results would be meaningless. Traffic counts are only routinely carried out on major roads; minor roads only get surveyed if there is a specific reason to check them. One of those reasons is high traffic, so the busier minor roads will have regular counts. But quiet minor roads may only get surveyed once in ten years or so, and in some cases there may be no recent data at all.

What that means is that there's no point trying to generate a list of the quietest minor roads, as all it would show is the quiestest surveyed minor roads. The really quiet roads simply won't appear in the list at all.
