Great source of useful information. The best I have seen!
Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) December 2, 2009
Beat the Traffic® has rolled out an improved version of its subscription My Traffic service. BeatTheTraffic.com is a website that provides real time information about traffic in metropolitan areas. Users have free access to basic features, while creation of a My Traffic account gives them access to a much larger set of features.
Basic services for the site include a live traffic map, which displays color coded routes based on the speed of traffic. The map also provides indications of construction, accidents and other delays, along with corresponding information. Also included are live traffic camera views, known drive times along major routes and live incident reports.
While the basic service is useful, commuters will find the My Traffic service comes with some very helpful tools. My Traffic allows users to create personalized routes; this includes drive times, incident reports and cameras shown for a specific route. This takes the guesswork out of commuting and enables commuters to plan for delays and find an alternate route if necessary. My Traffic also has a 7-day traffic forecast that will allow users to plan ahead, especially for upcoming events such as construction projects. The forecast feature allows users to avoid traffic problems ahead of time and plan alternate routes to avoid these. In addition, commuters will have a list of traffic cameras and incident reports specific to your route, instead of having to find each on a larger map. Users can also create a list of favorites, rather than having to individually locate a camera out of the 4500 that Beat the Traffic® has available. My Traffic can also be configured to send email updates, and on the go, My Traffic can even send updates to a mobile phone via SMS.
My traffic provides an excellent way to get all the traffic data for a specific route. Now, all the data is in one place, right at everyone’s fingertips. Having live information takes all the guesswork out of deciding a route. Now commuters can easily plan which way to take. My Traffic offers a 2 week free trial to anyone who is interested in trying out the service. During this time, users get full access to all features and have a chance to decide if they would like to subscribe to the service. For those who wish to subscribe, the service is easily affordable at a yearly rate of $19.95.
Let Beat the Traffic® Get You There!
