The Ministry of Public Security will launch a nationwide online traffic management system offering more than 130 services, as announced by the Ministry on its official Weibo account on Thursday.
The system is expected to be available in 2016.
By logging on the online traffic system, users will be able to check traffic and road information, as well as accessing traffic accident and weather reports. All services are aimed at allowing users to better plan their travels in advance.
Users can also apply for drivers' licenses and vehicle inspections, pay fines for traffic violations, update their personal information, and check traffic news and regulations via the online platform.
The online traffic system will even be connected with banks, automobile sales and service shops, driving schools and hospitals for additional services.
Registrations to access the system can be completed online or at local public security bureaus.
Users will be able to access the system online at 122.gov.cn or through its official app.
Users can also log on the system by texting or calling 12123.
Trial versions of the system have been offered in northwest China's Shaanxi Province, southeast China's Fujian Province and south China's Guangdong Province.
The numbers of vehicles and drivers in China keep soaring and reach 270 million and 300 million by June 2015, respectively.
The establishment of the online traffic management system is in accordance with the "Internet Plus" strategies advocated by Premier Li Keqiang back in March, with an aim to boost the development of China's Internet industry.
