Nowadays transportation systems suffer from many adversities. One of the most notorious issues is the traffic congestion. The transportation of persons and goods experiment notable delays with the consequent waste of precious resources and the rise of pollution. Actual Intelligent Transportation systems (ITS) are intended to relief the broad spectrum of challenges that affect our modern traffic infrastructures. However the deployment of these technologies is not always reachable for all cities. Also this is not always fully implemented because of the heavy infrastructure required and the elevated cost. In this paper we assess an architecture based on traffic routing services. This is a lighter implementation and affordable cost for cities where ITS technologies are scarce or absent such as cities in developing countries. In this paper we evaluate how our architecture called Virtual Police Agent for ITS traffic Routing ,  can help to improve the traffic performance. The end of this paper is to evaluate the benefits of Virtual Police Agents by means of several proposed scenarios.
