Traffic congestion is a mess on the road networks as it reduces the speed elongates trip time and lengthens vehicular queuing. It leads to a chaotic situation wherein the usage of traffic increases and resources are wasted. As according to name Emergency vehicles must be prioritized to reach their destination at the earliest. Emergency vehicles reaching destination on time can be very critical for saving lives. This paper attempts to analyze the dual problem of traffic congestion and fast commuting of emergency vehicles through a novel applicationof Queueing Theory. The manuscript reports implementation of proposedM/M/1: ∞/prioritymodel in Rohini’s Sai Baba Chowk to prioritize emergency vehicles over others. The same framework was also found to suit different roads on different patterns at different time slots.
