iPhone users will have to wait for a week or so to be able to use the app as its IOS version is under final phase of construction.
The functions included in the app are traffic lights, traffic news, traffic control room number, public eye, find bank, traffic station, important numbers, traffic FM, traffic sign, information and videos.
App users can get information about traffic jams, traffic rules and also watch the videos installed in the app to learn more about traffic police, traffic rules and road management.
