The next time you get caught in a traffic jam and are in need of all traffic-related information, a mobile application ‘’Traffic Police, Nepal’ could come handy to you. Inspector General of Police Upendra Kant Aryal, on behalf of the Metropolitan Traffic Police Division, will be launching the mobile app tomorrow. The cellphone app will bring all traffic-related information to the finger tip of mobile users and help them get information about road stretches facing and not facing traffic jams in real time. The app would also help users report the traffic police about any road accident that requires immediate intervention. ‘Traffic Police, Nepal’ app enables users within the Kathmandu Valley to get information about traffic jams and the best route available for hassle-free drive. It will also help users file motorcycle theft complaint and report accident and hit-and-run cases, overcharging of transport fares, sexual harassment in public vehicles, among others, via smart phone.
According to officials, users can also get information about punishment and fine for any violation of traffic rules. In addition, model question papers of driving licence exam and the meaning of different traffic signals can be obtained from the app. Notification about any traffic-related information, incident and accident is sent to the app immediately. Users can send traffic police the pictorial and documentary evidence through the app. It also provides the users the name and telephone number of nearest traffic police personnel for any help.
Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.
Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.
Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
