How well do those traffic monitoring services like the Sirius traffic monitor turn out? When my Ford Fusion Hybrid comes in this week, i'll have a 6 month trial subscription and wondered.
My biggest problem is that when you have a massive traffic backup, there is often NOWHERE to go as all of the side streets and local roads are backed up as well. Everytime the interstate gets shut down(an everyday occurrance lately due to retard drivers), there is little you can do as I know every road in my area, and pulling off into the local streets often turns into a bigger nightmare than waiting for the highway to reopen.
