The rapidly growing urban sprawl has given birth to the problem of traffic congestion that has turned into a major hurdle in the growth of developing countries. A possible solution to this problem is a Traffic Warning System (TWS) which can notify the users regarding the level of congestion on the road they are going to travel. This paper proposes to solve the aforementioned problem through the use of social networking. This will be made possible by the development of an Android-based Smartphone application, wherein the users will be able to update the traffic status of their current location.
