Traffic being the most serious problem in the present overcrowded world, several mishaps occurs in our day to day life. In this paper we have tried to develop an algorithm which will try to overcome this problem. The algorithm that we developed tracks the incoming ambulance or fire engine and the traffic signal automatically turns green and hence provide a smooth flow of these vehicles in even heavy traffic. Original signal is restored as soon as the vehicle moves out of the scanning vicinity of the traffic signal. Moreover, to avoid being stuck in congestion on a particular route, the user can just enter the destination and the program shall provide the user with the optimum path both in terms of traffic congestion and distance, along with other possible paths.
