The traffic flow analysis and the relevant vehicle distribution(“free-moving” or “platooned” vehicles) on highway facilitiesat uninterrupted flow has always had fundamental importancein Highway Engineering, with special reference to topics liketra c operations, car accidents, road safety and air pollutionemissions. In light of this, the study suggests a calculation algorithmas a random test generator to simulate a steady state trafficflow and to provide time headways. Thanks to the outcomeproduced by numerical simulations, we analysed platoon distributionswithin tra c flows in a steady-state regime and showedthe results of numerical analyses carried out by tra c randomprocess functions. The laws to determine “time headways” wereobtained by the Pearson type III generalized distribution.
