The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) in the US has unveiled its new ‘Click ‘n Fix’ mobile app, which has been designed for drivers to report concerns on state roads.

Using the new app, any problems on the road can be notified to the agency by dropping a pin on a map at the location of the problem and adding the comments about what went wrong.

According to UDOT communications systems administrator Becky Parker, anyone can notify the issues relating to potholes, animal carcasses, traffic signal timing issues and holes in fencing on state or federal roads.

"The mobile tool allows others to see everything that has been reported and add their own comments or follow the issue to get notifications."

Parker added saying that the mobile tool allows others to see everything that has been reported and add their own comments or follow the issue to get notifications.

The app asks a number of follow-up questions upon selecting the location, in order to help the agency understand what needs to be addressed.

UDOT repair crews will receive the concerns and post an immediate response to the issue.

The agency will take up only issues on federal interstates and state highways such as Bangerter Highway (state Route 154) and State Street (US 89). Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

Said to be available for iPhone and Android devices, the Click ‘n Fix application can be downloaded from the Apple store, Google Play or by visiting the UDOT website.
