I do hope they are able to make this a success, but I have my doubts. It could probably end up with the same dismal fate that other websites / helpline numbers from the authorities have met. Such an exercise requires a high level of commitment, investment and operational efficiency.
I would love to be proven wrong though.

There are better technologies out there just for broadcasting traffic information ( Traffic Message Channel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ).
I guess this is just another revenue stream for Mobile phone companies.

Is the information going to be useful in anyway? I used to listen to the announcements that used to be flashed by these FM stations. However the same roads used to be reported as avoidable day-in & day-out. What's the point then? & anyway you cant blame them also since this is the situation daily. In all these months has there been even a single day (baring the weekends) when the road near Centaur Hotel on the western express highway in mumbai is not full of traffic?
