Moscow: Nokia has introduced real-time traffic content on its HERE maps to 16 additional cities in Russia, bringing total coverage in the country to 31 cities. Russia’s roads are among some of the most congested and fatal in the world with reported traffic accidents in the country growing 1.9% to over 203,000 in 2012 as road infrastructure fails to keep with the growth in number of cars.
“Reliability and timely information are not trivial concerns for Russian drivers,” says Ogi Redzic, Vice President for Traffic at HERE. “Our expansion in Russia underscores our deep commitment to providing local market expertise and helping people in the country save time, fuel and experience less stress while driving.”
HERE offers traffic information in 33 countries for cars, personal navigation devices, smartphones, tablets and websites and we provide maps for four out of five cars with in-dash navigation.
