This article points out to the scarce amount of capital resources assigned to great infrastructure investment projects. This has led to an increasing utilization of Traffic management as a tool to solve urban transportation problems. This article on simulation models is directed towards non-specialists. It provides a global idea on the contributions and the limitations of such models. It also shows the alternative of utilizing socioeconomic rational criteria through models instead of mere intuitive approaches.
