No matter where you drive, the top annoying issue is traffic jams, causing frustration. Wouldn't it be better if we had an app that tells us which routes have traffic jams so we can avoid them successfully?

In this era of thriving technology, there are numerous applications designed to enhance our lifestyles, making them more convenient. The same goes for driving apps, and today, we'll introduce applications that can check traffic conditions, helping you to plan your journeys more effectively.


Motorist, the ultimate car management app that every car owner must have! Not only does it excel as a platform for buying and selling used cars, but it also comes with various features to make your driving experience easier.

For checking traffic conditions, you can use Motorist features like 'Traffic Incidents' and 'Traffic Cameras.' These allow you to access traffic cameras on various roadways and view real-time traffic conditions.

Moreover, you also stand a chance to win a maximum cash prize of up to *10,000 Baht every week with the 'Vehicle Plate Win' feature. Just add your car details to your profile once, and you're eligible to be the lucky winner every Sunday.


Most car owners are familiar with the JS100 app, which not only uses radio waves or social media to report road accidents but also offers a diverse range of functions. These include the MAPS function, which provides a detailed map of Thailand along with colour-coded traffic lines such as green for normal traffic, orange for minor congestion, and red for heavy traffic.

Moreover, if there is an accident-prone area or a frequently occurring incident at a particular location, the app will provide advance warning with audible alerts when approaching that accident hotspot within a 1-kilometre radius.
