    Traffic Reports

    I am interested in finding the best way to get traffic reports during rush hour. (I live in Los Angeles, CA) So far, I have found and signed up for http://www.SIGALERT.COM, and http;//TRAFFIC.TANN.NET. Would appreciate any comments or suggestions.

    May I humbly suggest the links to live Los Angeles traffic maps at MY site: http://www.warrenernst.com/traffic/

    You will get the best results from either Xiino (where the graphic is squished, but completely readable if you know the LA freeway system) or FireViewer (which has a web-browser component and can view the maps FULL SIZED, but the program is somewhat unstable).

    Blazer, Avantgo, and WebProV all show the map graphics in a very teeny tiny version that may be usable for some freeways. Your milage may vary (no pun intended).

    The default EIS browser can't handle the maps, and the Eudora browser is text only.

    My page also provides a link the CHP traffic incident reports web site, but it is not always updated accurately.

    Happy Driving!

    My pleasure. I see that there are at least a few regular users of this page, and that pleases me to no end.

    If you like that, you may also like my other "mobile portal" page, over at:

    http://www.metrocommute.com/

    I am in the process of grabbing the 3 roads I use and bookmarking the html pages. That way I only need to hit those pages that I need.
