Beat Traffik’s Filtered Traffic Reports (FTR) make it possible for users to receive traffic reports, Accident, robberies and Places of Interests within their location up to 5 miles ahead.”
HOW IT WORKS?

According to Odionye Confidence, “We wrote a letter to the office of the NCAA, addressed early May this year. It was not responded to after weeks. I literally had to walk the streets of the airport, MM1 to be in particular, meeting with most NCAA staff, answering questions regarding our operations and why we needed the license. I had to make couple of friends in the NCAA who gave me aguideline on the particular office to address my letter to. That enabled swift response from the NCAA.”
Beat Traffik, founded by Odionye Confidence and Popoola Tobi, is a mobile and web application that provide users with live traffic updates. It was founded in 2014 and has since then helped about 10,000 Lagos commuters avoid traffic through its twitter account and a prototype web application.
