This work focuses on a possible redistribution of car traffic, modelled via a fluid dynamic approach, within a part of the Caltanissetta city (Italy), when critical events, such as gathering phenomena, occur. Via a decentralized approach, a cost functional, that indicates the asymptotic average velocity of police cars, is maximized with respect to traffic parameters at nodes with two incoming and two outgoing roads. Then, the management of high traffic is studied by local optimal coefficients at each node of the network. The whole traffic phenomena are analyzed by simulations, which confirm the correctness of the optimization procedure. It is also proved that optimal parameters manage a fast transit of police cars on assigned paths on the network.
