Continuous and Discontinuous Traffic
- Continuous traffic routes, mainly highways, secondary
roads and access ramps. On this system, traffic is uninterrupted,
meaning that the traffic can flow at a regular speed. The only way
a vehicle can get access to this system is by merging in at specific
access points (green circles).
- Discontinuous traffic routes, such as streets with intersections
(traffic lights and stop signs), transit systems (bus stops and
metro stations), pedestrians and bicycle paths. Traffic is interrupted
at every intersection (red circles).
