Irritated with the everyday struggle with the capital’s unending traffic jams and unexpected processions? A newly launched website — www.thetrafficpeople.net — is worth checking out before you take to the roads.

Shailesh Sinha, the brain behind the website, said: “We give updated traffic information from time to time. My team members go out on the roads to calculate the actual time lag because of any traffic diversion like a procession or jam.”

The information is regularly updated during the peak traffic hours, between the morning office hours and again from 5 p.m. to about 9.30 p.m.

Mr. Sinha said the idea to start a website struck him after his experience of driving to work everyday through patience—testing traffic.

“My team constitutes all young guns. Some have four years of driving experience, some have six, some are fairly new and others who are as old as 10—year roadsters. We are all united with one aim — to do something about the traffic scenario of the city,” he says on his website.

The website gives driving tips too. It also gives one the option to get SMS alerts on traffic information.
