In order to propose a model for describing the behavior of road traffic a parallel with the hydrodynamic theory is made. The road traffic is decomposed into basic elements, which are modeled by similarity with hydrodynamic systems, by assuming that the flow of vehicles is similar to the movement of a fluid through a pipe. The different elements that compose a traffic region are analyzed and a dynamic model is proposed for each such element. The models are validated in simulation.
