'You won’t find a more accurate or reliable source of live traffic information anywhere,' said Ralf-Peter Schäfer, traffic director TomTom. 'The live traffic map is the perfect starting point for anyone planning a journey or who needs the most up-to-date view of the traffic on the road. By giving more drivers access to TomTom HD Traffic, we hope that we can start to make better use of the road network and start to reduce traffic congestion for everyone.'
The live traffic map has been designed for easy, fast viewing. It shows clusters of traffic incidents with a single icon, so users can see at a glance the number and severity of problems in a particular area. A detailed incident report list shows the length, delay and cause of a jam, so they can decide whether to plan an alternative route.
