GOogle updates its map with “Traffic Alerts”


Just in time for the hustle-and-bustle, Google has added traffic alerts to Google Maps.

Google has shown traffic conditions for a while now, but this update actually brings with it explanations as to why various routes will be faster, alerts for a blockage or traffic jam up ahead, and of course, alternate routes to each destination.

If/When a traffic jam pops up while you’re en route, Google Maps will also tell you about how long it expects you to be waiting if you stay on the same path, or give you other options.

Simple, yet useful. I hope this comes to Nigeria soon. I noticed that yesterday on my way to L.A California for weekend trip. The weather here is just PERFECT!!!
