Darb is an innovative new smartphone app, launched by the Department of Municipal Affairs and Transport in the city of Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, that is designed to help reduce traffic congestion by using real-time information to encourage people to take alternative routes to help them get to their destinations faster, helping reduce congestion for everyone.

The app disseminates information about traffic congestion and accidents, and even offers data pertaining to weather conditions. By helping to reduce traffic congestion, the Darb smartphone app doesn't merely make commuting more convenient for people, but it actually helps make roads safer because it's well known that severe traffic congestion can increase driver stress and road rage.
