KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 17 -- TomTom, the location technology specialist has launched its second generation, Road Event Reporter for reporting road closures, works and events.

The TomTom Road Event Reporter is an easy-to-use web-based application that allows road authorities and trusted partners to help drivers avoid unnecessary delay and frustration by reporting current and upcoming road events.

The free-to-use application is a map-based tool which allows the visualisation of traffic flow and incidents. It is available in the 81 countries where TomTom provides real-time traffic information.

According to TomTom Traffic and Travel Information vice-president, Ralf-Peter Schäfer, government agencies, automotive and logistics customers, as well as drivers in general, rely on its real-time traffic information to keep moving.

“That’s why we’ve developed our next-generation Road Event Reporter tool which is even more intuitive for cities and road authorities to use,” said Schäfer.

With Road Event Reporter, cities and road authorities can announce roadworks in time for drivers to find new routes and prevent congestion from forming.

It also enables event organisers to announce races, festivals or street markets that might disrupt traffic.

Headquartered in Amsterdam with offices in 30 countries, TomTom’s technologies are trusted by hundreds of millions of people worldwide. More information at
