Google your way out of traffic

Posted by Dave CollinsDigital Marketing

The latest from Google: real-time traffic information for your mobile phone. Essentially, it's a new function of Google Maps for Mobile, which lets you find a destination on your phone and then choose the “show traffic” option. The map is then highlighted red if there's a traffic jam, yellow if there is some congestion, and green if the roads are clear.

Cool, although only available in the US at the moment, with full coverage for more than 30 metro areas.

Saving the galaxy, one traffic jam at a time
