The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) will soon launch a mobile app to catch traffic violators. Complaints can be made via the app if motorists are found overspeeding, driving in a rash manner, or breaking rules.
The app will take a couple of months to be ready. However, once it is, complaints can be made by only pushing a button. Picture of the the car that has violated any traffic rule can also be uploaded.
This announcement of the new app was announced by Raghav Chandra, the Chairman of NHAI during a conference that took place on Friday.
He said, "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 also said that NHAI will soon introduce reforms to manage highway networks better.
The Chairman said, "Within the next one year we should have information of the entire 1,00,000 kms of highway network on its every aspect including the encroachment on both sides, quality of the road, width of the road, width of the right of way, issues concerning with junctions and so on."
This will help keep track and maintain road conditions, and also monitor problems faced by citizens, give alerts, guidance and route traffic along different ways.
He also assured that in another couple of years time, there will be a major change and improvement in road and safety conditions in the country.
