Sri Lankans, especially in urban districts usually hampered by the daily traffic jams.
Usually people needs to bring their vehicles to the road very early in the day to reach to their offices or businesses.
Same goes for the students.
Sri Lankan roads are not yet fully developed in urban cities to coup with heavy traffic flows. This is due to poor road management and constructions.
Some roads are without pavements and crossings, so the people walk on the roads and cross from anywhere they wants.
Similarly the traffic system is not developed to auto lighting systems.
I’d like to suggest few things that can be taken up as a better improvements.
First we need to introduce mobile map apps to all the citizens, such as google maps, waze etc,.
People should make a habit to switch on the map when they start riding or driving. This will be the first base or the foundation we need.
Once people are used to it, we should bring in the tech specialist (from Googlemaps, waze etc) to allow traffic police systems to engage with them.
These tech teams should get the feedings from the roads and allow traffic police personals to divert their map with alternatives.
When the traffic is mounting in one main road, immediately figure out set of riders, drivers and provide an alternative route and divert them towards.
Those alternative route marking should happen in real-time and allow police personal to control this from their bases.
This will be an excellent method to control the traffic and allow the people to provide their full productive time to their relevant jobs.
Else most of the time, people spend their 30% of productive time on the roads.
Knowing that the road developments in urban districts are minimal this method will bring a significant success to the nation.
