    Whatever you do, please don’t text while driving to send traffic updates.
    Friends don’t let friends text and drive.

  4. ariston says:

    I think from now on more and more people will headed on twitter while driving just to send traffic updates…

    btw, cool idea Mark! :)

  5. J says:

    You’d probably be in a traffic jam so it would be sort of safe to text/tweet from there :p

  6. K.theKuwaiti says:

    Great idea mark .. I wonder where you got it from. ;)

  7. AndyQ8 says:

    @J – It may be ‘safe’ to sent text messages when you’re in a traffic jam, but it’s still illegal!

  8. cajie says:

    It is NEVER safe to text while you are in the driver’s seat.

    @ adlybazaar – Don’t use the Gulf Road while tweeting man :)

  10. Finally we are doing something very useful for our people :” >

    It would be a lot better if this was on radio rather than texting on mobile. I agree with Cajie don’t text while driving or use your phone unless you have a bluetooth headset. It’s bad enough the main cause of everyday traffic are caused by silly or serious accidents.

  12. Mark says:

    I was wondering the other day if there was a voice to type app on the iphone

  13. makes me want to give twitter another chance..

    Vlingo voice to text / email

  15. The Kuwaiti Godfather says:

    I have a good idea. Why doesn’t the MOI work on a radio station that only reports on the traffic in Kuwait. I know that they have helicopters that can circle Kuwait and check up on the buzy roads. It is a win win for everyone as more jobs are created and traffic packs are avoided.

  16. The Kuwaiti Godfather says:

    Oh yea and by the way a good frequency would be 112.0 ;-)

  17. Pyyth4 says:

    no radio can tune in above 108.5 :P

  18. Mark says:

    so it could already exist and we wouldn’t know about it

  19. Pyyth4 says:

    lol….maybe…. but who knows? :\

    J, I hope they do because the “chinco” sheds people put outside our houses are so god damn ugly! I would rather suffer the heat then live in a street like that

  21. Khalid says:

    OMG.. are you kidding me?! just yesterday I was talking to my friend about creating a iphone/ipod application.. and I had the idea (when I was in a traffic) of creating a phone application for Kuwaitis to know the latest traffic updates! I called him right away and explained it to him.. he was amazed of how original the idea “was”.. not anymore though.. I’m a sad panda :(
