Frustrating

Traffic can be frustrating at times. Fortunately, there are ways to avoid it. Some are simple, common-sense solutions, and others are based on modern technology. One great method for avoiding high-traffic areas while traveling is using a smartphone application such as Waze. This program lets you report traffic issues and delays so other drivers can avoid them.

Markets Accept

Highways

For example, drivers can check if highways are closed or if construction is taking place near their destination.

Another method for avoiding high-traffic areas is to travel slowly. Avoid rush hour periods, which are when traffic is most dense. However, if you must travel at certain times, you should consider road closures and accidents. Also, if you must travel during rush hours, you should try to stay in your lane rather than weaving in and out. 

Traffic Alerts
