The successful management of traffic in the 21st century has placed a lot of pressure on traffic officers. Due to the volume of traffic using the roads continuing to grow at a faster rate than what the capacity of the road network can handle, the demand for the management of congestion has increased significantly, as this issue has affected areas all around the world. Traffic jams in major UK cities have increased over the past year which according to a survey by TomTom has added up to 16 working days' worth of delay to people's lives. In the worst-congested cities, evening rush-hour journeys are taking more than 70 per cent longer than they would in free-flowing traffic. (Massey, 2015) This project will discuss whether the introduction of a mobile traffic flow application could assist in the reduction of road users travel times.
