We examine the solution to the system of partial differential equations for the transport and continuity equations. The model for our system of equations closely resembles the Payne-Whitham model for traffic flow. The solution can be approximated closely through the method of finite differencing. We approach this approximation of the solution through computer simulation in Matlab.
