In this paper, we present the implementation of a parallel road traffic simulation using the concept of Lane Cut Points (LCPs) in the Spider programming environment. LCPs are storage buffers inserted into lane data structures at the road network partition edges. Vehicles enter a partition at the edges from an LCP and exit a partition edge into an LCP at the end of every simulation step. Spider, a parallel programming environment, which runs on PVM, coordinates the execution of the parallel traffic simulation.
