We consider a hyperbolic conservation law with discontinuous flux. Such a partial differential equation arises in different applications, in particular we are motivated by a model of traffic flow. We provide a new formulation in terms of Riemann Solvers. Moreover, we determine the class of Riemann Solvers which provide existence and uniqueness of the corresponding weak entropic solutions.
