Google Maps – now with Arterial Traffic info

For those of us commuters, especially the ones living in the suburbs of some big city, traffic can be a real nightmare. And of course, we’re all looking for alternative routes and usually when you drop off the freeway, you’re taking a gamble that the side streets will be better traffic-wise.

Help is here – Google (Traffic) Maps now features arterial traffic!

And while we’re at it, *you* can help to get this speed info right by getting Mobile Google Maps on your GPS-capable phone and turning on My Location so your phone sends Google up to date info about how fast you’re going. Nice.
