      yea, thanks to you with your weather radar control. Which by the way rocks! Just reconfig it for traffic. Its going to take a while to get it working correctly.

              Road Runner Traffic 1.0 beta!

              ok ready for people to test, try, tweak, mod, help!

              RR TRAFFIC1.0 BETA

              right now it only has 7 cities. I am not good at coding, maybe chuck can help

              includes these cities:
              fort myers, florida
              fort lauderdale, florida
              miami, florida
              key west, florida
              west palm beach, florida
              washington, DC
              los angeles, california

              bugs:
              fort myers button on the load city skin had problems, so right now it is disabled.

              Install instructions is a readme.txt included.

              I would really like to get some help to make this work. I think traffic would be a great addition to RR.

                no flash. did some reverse engineering to get the maps to update.

                    What about just creating a frontend for this page. here is the Example from my town http://traffic.poly9.com/traffic.php?csz=Austin%2C+TX all you would have to do would be create an input system for city/state or zip even maps are either google sat images with overlays or yahoo maps with overlays. it's what I use from day to day loads kinda slow in google mode but the stock maps load pretty quick on phone hookup.

                      lol... maybe smoke signals would be better

                      I just saw how you did the weather radar, figure i take a shot with traffic.

                      I know, give me some time to figure that site out. Using that site since its flash would be great.

                        that would work except that is not one picture but multiple pics. I really need something with one pic. Unless someone else knows a better way.

                          I could ... but is it worth it ? Traffic.com have RSS feeds as does The BBC for the UK which is the same but enhanced data as getmethere.co.uk - I have looked at a lot of the UK ones and pretty much understand how they work but I'm not sure of whether I should release the infomation.

                            I am about to start developing for the UK Traffic info again for those interested. Terran, send me a pm, have new ideas and have started something which I hope will interest most UK people.

                              I'm not sure if this is working. The DC map never shows any icons even during peek hours. I'm testing this on my home PC with Internet connection.
