This paper deals with the modelling and simulation of traffic flow phenomena at the macroscopic level, based on a suitable development of the Aw-Rascle model, [2], and its modification, [4], [5]. An acceleration term and a minimal velocity--dependent safety distance are introduced in the evolution equations. Then, an eulerian computational scheme is introduced to simulate the formation and evolution of jams. The results are compared with those obtained in [4], where a lagrangian computational method was used instead.
