I use Traffic.com sparingly to get notified of traffic problems on my way to or from work.
The reason I use it sparingly is that it doesn’t really tell me where the problem is. It only shows that there are “incidents” and what the delay in the drive time will be. That is it. (see screen shot to the left.)
It would be so much more helpful if they would show what the incidents are, where they are, and when they will be cleared up.
I know they show them on the website, but sometimes I can’t look at their map. I want it to say, accident at I-25 and 56th Ave.
Is that too much to ask? I guess that it is.
Until they get it improved, I probably will skip it. I just wish there was a better alternative and there isn’t.
Does anyone know of any alternatives that can provide me the necessary information? Leave a comment.
