The range of highway capacities of free flow at the bottleneck in three-phase traffic theory contradicts fundamentally classical traffic theories as well as methods for traffic management and traffic control which at any time instant assume the existence of a particular deterministic or stochastic highway capacity of free flow at the bottleneck. The quality of traffic flow is checked according to the German Highway Capacity Manual with average delay for motor vehicles and maximum delay for cyclists and pedestrians as the indicator (stationarity during peak hour assumed). Table contains the relevant data and level of service for all lanes and pedestrian crossings. It also provides.

Initially developed for highway traffic, Kerner expanded the three phase theory for the description of city traffic in Range of highway capacities. In three-phase traffic theory, traffic breakdown is explained by the F → S transition occurring in a metastable free flow. Probably the most important consequence of that is the.
