Do you have a Twitter Account? If you do then we've got some very exciting news for you! Rather than wasting your time searching through our platform and Twitter for Relevant Traffic Reports you can now sit back, relax and receive Twitter Mentions on your smartphone's Twitter App whenever Accidents, or other Traffic-Related Incidents occur on any Road of your choice.

For example, let's say you live in Ajah and work in Victoria Island. This would mean that you drive down Lekki-Epe ExpressWay everyday when going to Work in the morning and returning Home after Work at the end of the day. Now imagine receiving a Twitter Mention on your Phone whenever someone reports an Accident, Construction Work in Progress or other Traffic-Causing Obstacles along Lekki-Epe ExpressWay, wouldn't that be very helpful!

How can I Setup a Traffic Alert?
Setting up Traffic Alerts is easy, just follow these simple steps:
  1. Are you registered on If you are then Login, if you're not then please Register on our website
  2. After you Login you'll land on your Profile Page. Click on the "Create Traffic Alert" link on your Profile Page with the icon below.

  3. Choose the Road you would like to monitor for Traffic Reports
  4. Choose the Activity you would like to monitor on the Road your chose previously
  5. Enter the Twitter Handle that you want to receive the Twitter Mention whenever your chosen Activity is reported on your chosen Road. Please NOTE that the Twitter Handle must be in the format "@MyTwitterHandle"

Wasn't that easy? :) Now free your mind of all worry and let us do all the hard work of checking for Traffic Reports that concern you and notifying you on Twitter. Enjoy!
