I’d probably try sticking with a particle approach. Or depending on how long the shot is manually doing it as sometimes simulation takes longer to get right than just cracking on and adding them.

I’m struggling a little to picture what you’re trying to achieve. You want 3D cubes to fly down the street, but at random times. Definitely get one cube to fly down the street the way you want. Animate this using Element, then look at duplicating it. Andrew Kramer’s tutorial on Particle Shadows: uses a 2D representation of a 3D sphere to simulate loads of them bouncing down a street. I think this might get you closer you what you’re after.
