Border police released the application "Traffic Online" today, which helps to avoid crowds at the border.

The new application offers travelers the opportunity to choose a less crowded road.
You only need Internet acces to reach it. So whether you are a car driver or a passenger, the app will show you how much time you will need to cross the border.

The information is actually an application that displays real-time information on the average waiting time at checkpoints for two categories: transport cars and trucks " , said press officer of the Border Police, Dorina Cebotari.
