Traffic jams and Bengaluru has become synonymous. Bangaloreans and its administration is taking on the challenge of traffic Head on by their participatory approach. Traffic jams are most likely caused by road blockages and unmanned traffic signals. Now people can send info on a particular location where traffic jams occur through whats-app to 7259100100 and measures would be taken immediately.
The problem of traffic in Bengaluru is one of the worsts and the problem has grown so big that as per Bangalore Mirror reports , engineering consulting firm Quest Global, which employs 3,000 employees at its two outposts in Bengaluru, has decided to give the city the go-by, preferring Thiruvananthapuram instead for its next big round of recruitment which will see 1,000 employees added over a year.

The Logical Indian commends Bangalore administration for simple initiatives as these which could go a long way in minimising traffic woes in Bangalore. People participation will be vital in effective implementation of the same.
