Traffic jams are horrible, and (almost) nobody ever enjoys sitting through them. But thanks to modern technology, we now have solutions to bypass such problems. TomTom has just released its HD Traffic service online for free. This online map service does more than show you how to get to your destination – it points out which areas are highly congested with vehicles at the moment. With updates every 2 minutes, you can be sure to stay on top of traffic using the service and you’ll spend less time in a vehicle, grumbling about how you should’ve taken another exit. The next time you’re about to leave the office for home, just log on to TomTom HD Traffic and give it a shot and let us know how it works out for you.
