MobileWeb builds SMS Flits service for Touring Mobilis

Touring Mobilis introduces the Flits Alarm, a new mobile service allowing consumers to receive the location of traffic radars by SMS. After sending a SMS with the keyword FLITS and his postal code to the shortcode 9180, the user receives a message back, containing all traffic radars in a 50 kilometer radius. It’s also possible to subscribe to the FLITSINFO service, which automatically sends new flits information in your region.

Touring Mobilis, service by and for the road user
Touring Mobilis keeps an eye on the current status of all Belgian roads. A broad network of correspondents ensures an up-to-date overview of all accidents, traffic jams, road blocks and radars. “It was already possible for road users to inform us by SMS when they noticed a radar.
