Life for Delhi citizens on wheels will be changing – and changing for better now. The Delhi Traffic Police has launched a free SMS service this week for the commuters to alert them against sudden traffic jams on account of factors like political demonstrations, religious processions, rallies, protest marches, etc. While on your way back home, you do not have to get stuck up enroute any longer for unpredictable traffic bottlenecks. The new service will send you an SMS to warn you of the traffic jams so that you can devise an alternate route to reach your destination.
The SMS alert service launched by B S Bassi, Delhi Police Commissioner, will be available to commuters and motorists free of charges. All that a citizen has to do is to subscribe for the service by sending an SMS to 9811452220. Once registered, the subscriber will be alerted through SMS in regard to traffic related issues like water-logging on streets, accidents, traffic-closure, route-diversions, processions, etc. on his mobile. The updates will help the commuters to plan change of route at the right time. The updates will be not only be quite useful to the commuters but will also be of great help in easing traffic congestion, especially during the peak hours.
In a press statement issued on the occasion of launching of the scheme, the Delhi Police said that this was yet another initiative by them in “this direction in which the registered users will get alerts via SMS regarding traffic situation like congestion points, water logging, rallies, political/religious processions, Dharnas/Strikes, traffic restrictions/directions, accidents/breakdown of vehicles etc." Let us hope, it would help the citizenry of Delhi to have a more comfortable and pleasant driving experience.
