Real Time Indian Traffic App on iPhone

Traffic in India stressing you out?

We don’t blame ya.

After driving in the traffic hells of Los Angeles, New York City and elsewhere in the U.S. for so many years, we understand your situation too well.

Help could be at hand with a new application called Traffic India for the iPhone that claims to provide real-time traffic reports.

Priced at $1.99 and available at Apple’s App Store, Traffic India is said to provide traffic information for Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad and Delhi.

Here’s an excerpt from the description of Traffic India on our iPhone:

Based on your current location, or any other location you configure, Traffic will retrieve the current traffic conditions in the area and display them on a map or in a customized listing. Easily switch back and forth between map view and list view to monitor all of the traffic around you.

Choose the order that traffic items are shown, the severity, and how large of a search area to cover.

We haven’t tested the Traffic India application since we are based in the U.S.

There are no reviews for the Traffic India application on the Apple App Store as yet.

    Same with Sri Lanka. In Colombo, about 20 years ago there were nice street names that had been there for centuries have been changed. The old names were very popular and even after the changes people still do call the old names to these roads. Those names were kept by the British during their colonial rule.

    The Nationalistic forces within the government, the sinhala buddhist fanatics change street names into buddhist monks names and temple names in the vicinty. The nationalistic guys are the ones who does all the damages to the fabric of society in any country.

    The problem is many of these Sinhala names are toungue twisting ones and difficult to pronounce:

    Some of the name changed were:
    Armour Street – Sri Sangaraja Mawatha (Mawatha is road in Sinhala language)
    Bailey Street – Mudalige Mawatha
    Queens Road – Janadhipathi Mawatha
    Grandpass – Kosgas Handiya
    Slave Island – Kompangna Veediya
    Bullers Road – Bauddhaloka Mawatha
    ….some of the new names I can’t even remember. The following are the old names still being used:

    Prince Street, Duke Street,Albert Crescent, Edinburgh Crescent ,Keyzer Street ,Maitland Crescent, Paget Place, Barnes Place, Campbell Place, Ward Place and Macarthy Road. Guildford Crescent,Robinson Street,Dawson street ,Wolvendhall Street, Messenger Street, Korteboam Street…etc

    The British did a great service by introducing many modern infrastructre and facilities and above all good education. But the Sinhala gooks are trying to reverse it by going backwards into old sinhala kingdom era with Buddhism as the state religion.

    If the British were rule even until today Sri Lanak (Then CEYLON) would have been something like HongKong now.

    I have nothing against the application, but I can assure you that at least, it surely wont work in Bengalooru.
    The point is, even if you have the information, you can not use it in any way. There are hardly any alternative routes. Thanks to good salaries in ITES sector, the number of people who drive to their work and back (in cars, two-wheelers) has shot up. Add to this an inadequate public transport, a large number of pesky autorickshaws, and the new fad adopted by companies to send cabs at will, travelling in B’lore has become hell.
    Imagine what happens if Tata Nano hits the road.
    Personally, I know of tens of people (mostly working in ITES sector) who travel at least three hours every day.
    No matter what you earn, can you imagine wasting THREE hours of your day just travelling. Okay, you can listen to some music, read some book, etc, but common, you dont want to travel three hours every day. I have grown increasingly sick of B’lore over the last few years. It is literally hell. Responds:

    Bangalore has been going downhill for decades.

    In our view, good public transportation is the key. But the auto lobby will never allow that.

    So the prognosis is that B’Lore will become much, much worse.

    As for the people, they think it’s prestigious to own a car. After driving 2.5 Lakh KM, we are sick of cars and driving.
