The factors affecting traffic intensity have been determined, and the situations of controlling traffic flows at city highways have been discussed taking into account actual traffic capacity of the roads. A concept of adaptability with respect to road traffic provision (RTP) has been given. The RTP system has been presented as a «black box» in the context system analysis. A dependence of determining indicator of adaptability of a signal-controlled intersection to the changed traffic flows has been proposed and the quantitative intervals making it possible to select intersections on the basis of actual duration of traffic-light control cycle have been acquired.
