Commuters in India face a lot of vehicular problems which usually go unreported and thus, unattended. Malfunctioning traffic lights, potholes and roads in bad conditions are only a few of the innumerable common thoroughfare problems that occasionally contribute to traffic chaos. People tend to ignore reporting those issues as the channels for making a complaint is inconvenient. Accuracy of complaints is also at doubt as it tends to be general e.g. Potholes at NIBM Road, in front SBI bank. This paper presents the architecture of a Global Positioning System (GPS) based approach for reporting thoroughfare problems via Global System for Mobile communication (GSM) for road maintenance management environment.
