The evolution of man into the world of his own making has increased the share of road accidents. These accidents not only cause deaths but also slow down the movement of traffic, leading to slowing down of man’s planned schedule. There are many reasons affecting the traffic, let it be poor management of road, lack of knowledge on traffic rules and weather being one of the reasons in a direct or an indirect way. The main aim is to design and implement a simple, inexpensive and reliable wireless traffic and weather monitoring system. The microcontroller reads the sensed data and forwards it to the twitter page automatically with a certain delay for the display. The system has lesser complexity of development, better accuracy and is flexible with good feasibility.
