Beware, before violating any traffic rules as NHAI (National Highways Authority of India) is designing a mobile app, which will check the traffic violations on highways. The app will enable people in the capital Delhi to report any traffic violation on the go.
The app can be used to report the people who are doing reckless driving, driving off roadways, exceeding the speed limits or any other similar infractions. The NHAI Chairman Raghav Chandra said that the app will be embedded with the transport registration network by this December to promote proper highway management and road safety.
The announcement was made during inauguration a conference on ‘Roadtech: Role of new technologies” by Assocham here.
He further added that it will take about two months in development and testing and will be soon available for the end users. After installing the app, users will be able to take images of the vehicle which os violating the traffic rules and can register a complaint by a single touch.
“All the complaints will get registered in the ledger pertaining to that vehicle whereupon the police/transport department can take further action about it,” he said.
Commenting on the road safety and improvement of highway network management, Chandra said, ““In the days to come, I hope to be able to introduce reforms to bring about better management, control, policing of our highways network, I feel with more physical intermediation we should be able to bring about something like patrolling to improve the physical management on roads and I think that will have a significant improvement on road safety.”
NHAI is is currently creating a ‘data bank’ of all the highways included in Road Asset Management System (RAMS) that has been commissioned for 3,000 kilometres of roads, he further added.
In addition, he promised the India citizens that NHAI will strengthen its several institutions, which are connected with road safety such as the Institute of Highway Engineers, Indian Roads Congress that are responsible for the essential standardisation and planning of roads.
