India is the second largest country in the category of population. With the increasing population the consumption of the vehicles also increases, leading to critical burden on traffic management in the metropolitan cities and towns of the country. In 2011-12 alone, 20. 4 million motorized vehicles were sold in India leading to congestion and accidents on the roads. For controlling the traffic on the road some traditional methods were used like using traffic lights and traffic signs, traffic policemen and round-about. In this paper we will discuss the existing techniques which will help India for controlling the traffic on the roads.
