This paper presents a mathematical model to predict the average number of vehicles in a road segment when there is road capacity reduction. Empirical study of road traffic flow in Nigeria was undertaken using a digital camera (Samsung ES65) to collect video films on volume of vehicles and other scenes at different locations in Benin City. Result show that the average number of vehicles in the queue will increase over time when a road capacity is reduced. Also, the transient nature of the analyses can be used in building road traffic alert system.
