The traffic scenario is a interaction result of many social and cultural factors. Using cellular automaton for microscopic simulation of traffic scenarios, to verify and optimize traffic situations, is proved to be an effective research method to improve the the humanism design and traffic order of intersections. Building traffic scenario formalized description model is a critical part of simulation. Based on the requirements of the analog application with cellular automaton, the paper propose a multi-views framework to describe traffic scenarios, which were defined and formalized described from these three perspectives: phenomenon description, mechanism explanation and results evaluation, providing an important theoretical basis for CA simulation and research of traffic social problems.
