How often has this happened to you: You are sitting at your desk at work or you are at home and someone calls (spouse, friend, colleague) and says: “Can you check traffic for me? I’m at the airport and want to take the 105 to the 110. How does it look?” (or whatever route they need…) And depending on your relationship with the caller, you drop everything and find out. Sure, you could remind them that KNX has traffic reports every six minutes (AM 1070 for you new to LA-ers), but this is just the break you were hoping for in a long afternoon of TPS Reports or cat box cleaning.
Personally, I like Sigalert.com…but that’s just me.
