China launches national traffic management website

world Updated: Dec 02, 2014 12:12 IST

China's first nationwide traffic management website was launched Tuesday.

Coinciding with the country's annual Traffic Safety Day, the website will provide real time traffic data to the public which will be particularly useful for private car users, Xinhua reported.

The website will be based on information collected and reported by the nation's 270,000 traffic policemen and video surveillance records to guarantee better traffic safety.

Commuters can instantly consult with traffic police online and learn about topics and events in traffic control, head of the traffic bureau said.

The traffic department will make policy and enforcement adjustments in line with the suggestions submitted online.

The website will also play a role in road safety education, giving traffic knowledge lectures and safe travel tips to the public, he said.

There was no national official traffic information inquiry website in the past.

Previously, the only option was to log onto local websites or go to the city's transport administration to inquire on records, causing inconvenience for the public and loopholes for information tampering.
