Getting Around As Safely As Possible – the following links can help!

Since leaving the world of traffic reporting, I rarely hear any traffic reporter give “alternate routes” – or, will say “it’s the usual slowdown” with no details!  The following web sites can help give you the full picture on traffic, weather – even earthquake activity!

Please get in the habit of checking these traffic sites before heading out the door, so you’ll know what’s really happening out there – areas to avoid.  Always make it a SAFE ride – no cell phone use behind the wheel – unless it’s an emergency!
