Yahoo to your traffic rescue!

While its Bars & Clubs search needs refinement, Yahoo Maps Beta is a new & improved Yahoo Maps that now sports a handy “Live Traffic” function. Click that and you can see an assortment of traffic bottlenecks in real time. This would be good to check before that morning commute.

I just checked it now – 11pm, and there are only NoVA traffic problems, which I think means it only works in NoVA vs. only NoVA has traffic problems. Still, that’ll be valuable for my morning-afters with my NoVA supermodel harem.

    It also works in Maryland along 495, but no District traffic sensors have been added yet. It does show construction sites in DC, though, and the potential delays that come along with those.

    Yahoo Maps beta is definitely slick, but it is in beta after all. I was out to the campus late last year, and they are hiring every talented programmer they can snap up. Watch for all sorts of stuff out of Sunnyvale this year. As some of you are probably aware, they are also buying up properties left and right, most notably Flickr and del.icio.us.
