Thing would have been even better if road.lk had reached level 2. Then both the above incidences would have been reported at least 5 minutes earlier, and quite possibly a comparison would have been provided which would enable motorist to estimate how much longer they would spend on the road if they chose to brave the traffic.
In order to reach Level 2, road.lk needs more people to use their GPS tracker, which is a feature of the Android app available for download. Though quite a few people have downloaded the app, the majority seems to only use it for traffic alerts. But for better traffic alerts, the GPS tracker usage is needed.
The tracker would enable road.lk to automatically detect high congestion levels and automatically send out notifications so that the alerts can be sent out a little bit quicker and save you that extra bit of time spent on the road.
