On-line response dynamic traffic management system (DTMS) seems to be the key solution for resolving many and the most important traffic problems in urban areas. Commonly used on-line response DTMS consists of on-road equipment (detectors, variable message signs etc.) and computer aided system. Such a system is generally installed in world metropolis with huge traffic loads that cannot be managed without it. The paper focuses on the real meaning of DTMS, possibilities of its usage in a medium size urban area, its purpose and expected consequences. Our experiment is based on the existing and verified traffic model of the City centre of Maribor, where different micro simulation scenarios were analysed. The main differences between non - response and on-line response traffic management systems are shown. In addition, their functionality and efficiency by resolving the possible traffic problem (unexpected traffic accident at the neutral point of the network) are represented.
