Congrats to a government department! (didn’t think I’d say that). Their new service at http://www.traffic-england.co.uk is great, especially their Motorway traffic flow graphs where you can turn on or off various streams of information, here is the M6 close to me when I wrote this:
The only things that aren’t quite there are the interactive map isn’t working at the moment. I was also surprised that the agency hadn’t considered mobile users on smartphones. I feel that even though they have a telephone number (08700 660 115 – cheaper than a lot of the premium rate services offered by others) they should have a mobile accessible site … oh and if anyone reads this from the agency could you make the number text rather than embed in a graphic so folks with soft phones or those who have opened the site on a telephone can call it without typing in the number (thanks!).
