The new application platform can help a citizen take picture of traffic violators, get alerts on traffic jams, complain against errant autorickshaws and even get instant updates on traffic jams during emergencies. The app also provides the user an opportunity to suggest an idea, give feedback and even register a complaint. The app is connected to a GPS enabled server that can provide the co-ordinates of a stolen two or four wheeler and even guide a commuter for navigation.
