Full Answer

At the Weather Network, you get the most up-to-date information regarding weather patterns and traffic. Through the use of detailed maps, they display thorough information on all roadway risk factors as well as suggesting alternate routes. This way, even in the worst conditions, you can plan your route safely. The maps are color-coded for easy readability. By entering in your specific location and destination, it formulates a map that emphasizes dangerous parts of the road, areas experiencing high congestion and recent accidents that are slowing down traffic, to help you plan the safest route accordingly.

Local Conditions is a website that provides similar services. Through the use of colors and symbols, it creates a map outlining the various roadway accidents, congestion, construction and speed of traffic so you can choose the route that is safest and most efficient. To ensure the most accurate information, consider using each map side by side. This allows you to compare notes between the two in the event one website has more up-to-date information that the other website doesn’t currently reflect.
