This paper presents mathematical model for the study of traffic flow on the highways.  The effect of the density of cars on the overall interactions of the vehicles along a given distance of the road was investigated. We also observed that the density of cars per mile affects the net rate of interaction between them.
Contribution/ Originality
This study uses new estimation methodology to determine the effect of the density of cars on the overall inSteractions of the vehicles along a given distance of the road.
