Unfortunately, we could use this during rush hour…

So, you’re sitting in traffic along U.S. 280 and you’re wondering just what’s keeping you from continuing your journey. CommuterFeed.com seems like it could be the next answer to our need for that kind of information.

As much as we know all of you like to use the Traffic.com feed (for those that don’t, it’s at the bottom of the center column on the front page), you probably need something much more accessible when you’re out on the road. CommuterFeed uses Twitter feeds and local airport codes to keep track of traffic problems throughout the country. They’ve already got several major cities listed on their site (and a page just waiting for us to add information to it). To find out exactly how this works, click on the link above and then click on the “how it works” tab on the right side of the page.

Of course, you can always give us story ideas by signing up for Twitter and adding bhamterminal to your friends list – like Jeremy did…

thanks, Jeremy!

Don't forget that the Google Maps Traffic feature works for Birmingham - on the iPhone too. Its not always apparent how accurate the traffic data in Google is.
