Full Answer

While there are numerous sources for live traffic information regarding New Jersey driving conditions, the New Jersey Department of Transportation chooses to direct its website visitors to 511NJ. This site offers visitors access to public traffic cameras throughout the state, as well as travel advisories related to congestion, traffic accidents and other issues that motorists may face.

News 12 New Jersey (traffic.news12.com) offers information on local traffic conditions in a similar manner to 511NJ, with access to traffic cameras, congestion advisories, and indicators for road closures due to construction. News 12 New Jersey, like the New Jersey Turnpike Authority and 511NJ, obtains its map data from Google, but News 12 New Jersey's map does not display a copyright notice belonging to the New Jersey Department of Transportation, while the New Jersey Turnpike Authority and 511NJ do.

As of 2015, the service that updates its traffic information the most frequently is 511NJ. The website states that it updates its traffic information every one to two minutes.
