In Sri Lanka road traffic has been and is a major problem (Specially in Colombo) for many no matter the person rides a bike, drives a vehicle or a pedestrian. All these days the only way we got updates on road traffic is through radio, short message service or sometimes calling someone who is in the area we want to travel. To save all the trouble google live traffic is now in Sri Lanka.
Google enables their live traffic option through google maps for Sri Lanka. Red indicates high traffic areas and green indicates less. The live traffic option even indicates construction zones too. To enable the option you just have to go to maps.google.com and enable the traffic layer option from the left hand side menu bar on google maps or you can google search “Traffic” for easy access.
