Abstract : A stochastic model is developed to describe the behavior of traffic on a two-lane, two-way road. Unlimited visibility and absence of intersections are assumed. The inputs are free speed distribution and traffic density; the outputs are forced speed distributions, queue lengths, passing times, etc. Computer programs, sample problems, and applications are presented.
