Road Patrol

The business district of the capital city is about 320 km, and the daily traffic volume is about 1 million vehicles. While many customers are using it, the reality is that various traffic problems do occur. In order to ensure the safety of customers while travelling, we think that "safe", "precise", "prompt" correspondence is necessary. Major traffic disorders include traffic accidents, broken cars, falling objects, etc. An average of around 31 traffic accidents, 33 broken cars, 73 fallen objects occur per day. In order to discover and eliminate transportation facilities at an early stage, the capital city is working on control and patrol operations with a thorough system. In addition, We also cooperate with related organizations to identify vehicles that are not compliant with road laws such as records. We strive to secure safe and comfortable passage 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
