The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) will soon launch a mobile app on which public can make complaints against those indulging in rash driving, breaching speed limit or involved in any other similar acts.

To promote road safety and proper highway management, the app will be introduced integrated with transport registration network by December, NHAI chairman Raghav Chandra said on Friday.

This will take a month or two to create it. It will be soon available for the citizens so that they can even take a photograph of the vehicle, which is speeding or violating any structures relating to transport and press a button to register a complaint against that vehicle, Mr. Chandra said.

“All the complaints will get registered in the ledger pertaining to that vehicle whereupon the police/transport department can take further action about it,” he added.

“In the days to come, I hope to be able to introduce reforms to bring about better management, control, policing of our highways network, I feel with more physical intermediation we should be able to bring about something like patrolling to improve the physical management on roads and I think that will have a significant improvement on road safety,” he said.

Mr. Chandra said the NHAI was working towards building up a complete information of data bank of all the highways, which is called the Road Asset Management System (RAMS), which has already been commissioned for 3,000 kilometres of roads.

“Within the next one year we should have information of the entire 1,00,000 kms of highway network on its every aspect, including the encroachment on both sides, quality of the road, width of the road, width of the right of way, issues concerning with junctions and so on,” he added.
