I need something that tells me about traffic problems around Oxford, that I can quickly look at before leaving home.|
Today, the east bound south of the ring road was near stationary, as was the north bound A34 around there (and all the way back to Abingdon). Combination of Abingdon road roadworks and a broken down something on the A34. The result was that I ended up going south on the A34 towards Abingdon, then taking the villages route back up to Witney. (In hindsight, I should've gone further down towards Abingdon then taken a better road from their to Witney, but I didn't have a map to hand when I came off the A34).
If there were such a beast, I could've seen that traffic was bad, and gone the other way round the ring road. That adds 10-15 minutes onto my journey (depending on traffic there), but that also depends on the traffic.
I suspect some screen scraping of a few sites + consolodated interface will be the key.
