The proposed object is to carry out the calculations of the traffic parameters, in accordance with the Webster model, on one of the main arterials. This is an analysis of some crossings in the city of Manaus, presenting many points of traffic conflicts between pedestrians and vehicles, whose public power option for some of these cases was the adoption of traffic lights. Through the usual traffic engineering models, the objective is to demonstrate if these traffic lights are within the criteria through counting and analysis.
