    http://www.traffic.com/ has chicago info, but not sure what all they have available... Maybe just accidents... Most major citites have the traffic on a website somewhere, you just need to find it... I use http://www.sigalert.com for all CA traffic... Good luck...

      I am in Denver and use the DOT site which has real time web cameras and speed sensors.

      Here is one map with real time speed (MPH) info - you might find something for your state.


      Colorado DOT Site

      I have quick simple web page I created with my popular route mapped out and webcams so I can open it (firefox) to load up those pictures or maps when I hit traffic so I know if I should bail or just stay on track. As you can see this afternoon, (if you look above in the next hour or so) traffic in Denver sucks - I will stay away from downtown I-25.




      I just noticed the CDOT site added links to show any messages being displayed on the large signs they have - often they tell of accidents or tell if a lane is closed or something. Have to add that stuff to my webpage to access those items too:
