INRIX App – Comparative Traffic
A couple of years ago in my post ‘Painting the Traffic Picture‘, I argued that for many hard-core commuters, they care not about what the traffic speed is, but how it differs from “normal”. They know what normal traffic conditions are, they know which roads will likely be slow, so it is more useful for them to know what might be different from typical.
Today, INRIX updated their Traffic app to version 3.0 and added a feature that does just that…. “Comparative Traffic – see what’s abnormal”. Glad to see that they too thought this would be a valuable change. Also added are the ability to submit a report if you find traffic conditions different than represented and a way to see traffic in areas not near your current location.
