Punekars can now enjoy the convenience of a real time traffic app for their android smartphones. Pune city traffic police department launched this app on Wednesday, designed for more efficient circulation of traffic related information for the app users. The citizens have to download the special code for the app, after which they can enjoy its benefits.
Like Bangalore's Traffic Portal, this app can help the users to take pictures of traffic violators/ reckless drivers and share them with authorities; they will also receive alerts on traffic jams, which can be very useful during emergency situations. What is more, is that this app can connect to a GPS enabled server which can help the user for navigation and more importantly, it can also provide co-ordinates of a stolen vehicle as well.
Mr. Vishwas Pandhare, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Traffic) has stated that they will ensure that the software is updated at appropriate times to keep the users of the app informed about the traffic conditions.
This app will not only help residents of Pune but also those who will be traveling to the state. Let us hope that the Pune traffic police ensure the smooth functioning of this app and they take action against those offenders who the citizens report via this app. Perhaps then, the traffic conditions in Pune improve.

1. Fines for violation
