RAC Traffic Review
by on March 13, 2010
Anyone who has been on the M25 in rush hour knows that traffic jams can turn any sane man into Jack Torrence. Luckily, for those of us who’d rather keep our cool on the road, the RAC has developed an app to make your life on the move that little bit easier.
Now this is strictly for those who carpool as obviously you can’t use your phone while driving, unless you get a phone holder but the RAC Traffic app shows you in real time and via Google maps where the traffic hotspots are. Through the joys of your GPS it will even determine which nasty jams are near you.
It won’t rid the roads of boy racers, middle-lane hoggers or totalitarian truck drivers but it works and is uncluttered and, best of all, it’s simple to use.
The app offers two screen layouts: either you see a map with incident signs or a running list of incidents.
To get it to work properly, you do have to go into the options section of the app and enable Map Follows Me. Otherwise you will know what the traffic is like back to base and nowhere else.
