In recent years, there has been a large increase in individual transportation due to rising living standard and systematic economic preference of individual car transportation and a road network in terms of capacity and permeability ceases to satisfy. Traffic collapses, congestions, accidents and a further negative impact on the environment are gradually becoming a common part of our lives. In spite of large investments into the infrastructure development, the traffic situation is constantly getting worse. In our contribution, we analyze the intersection of roads n. I/65 and III/2144 near the city of Martin, which is very busy and we propose possible solutions using microscopic simulation in software Aimsun.
