Avoid Traffic With Automated RSS Feeds

If you live in or near one of 70 major cities in the U.S. like I do, you may not be aware Yahoo now provides a traffic update feature on its Local Maps page.

It's a feature Yahoo unveiled pretty quietly late last year that displays real time traffic conditions including speed and congestion information on major roads, as well as construction information and accident reports. And, you can turn traffic information on or off with a new control box that appears on the right side of a map display.

If you're a tech geek like I am and use a versatile Web browser -- a hint for you to download Firefox today -- or a RSS (really simple syndication) reader, you can keep track of traffic along your routes to and from work with the help of some simple, flexible coding, an example of which appears on one of my more favorite sites, Lifehacker.
