New App Will Tell You How Long You’ll Be Stuck in a Minnesota Traffic Jam
I'm not sure how I feel about this.
There's an app for just about everything these days and some creative genius came up with one to determine how long you'll sit in a traffic jam. I've never really understood the concept of a traffic jam, I just know they occur way too often.
According to TIME, this app is called Waze and it includes a real-time traffic mapping feature that gives you an idea of how long you will have to wait. It functions by using real-time GPS data from its users. You may be able to find a way around the congestion but if you can't, you'll at least have an idea of how long it will take you to get through it.
If this is accurate, I think it might be one of the best apps out there. However, if I'm stuck in traffic, I'm already pretty cheesed off. If this app tells me I will be in the clear in 10 minutes and it takes 20, I'm not going to be a happy camper.
