The good news for consumers is that there are now plenty of information sources to help them deal with traffic. Real-time traffic information is now available on services like Ford SYNC with Traffic, Directions, and Information; the new highly-acclaimed INRIX Traffic! free iPhone application; AT&T Navigator; MapQuest.com; 3D traffic forecasts on local broadcast TV stations; and hundreds of mobile applications.
INRIX is continually exploring ways to help consumers, businesses, and public officials better understand issues that can affect the flow of traffic and how to solve these problems in the future. In February 2009, INRIX published its second annual INRIX National Traffic Scorecard. The report was the first of its kind to rank and provide detailed information on the 100 most congested US metropolitan areas and the 100 worst traffic bottlenecks, all based upon calendar year 2008 traffic information. The company also released its first Scorecard Special Report, The Impact of Fuel Prices on Consumer Behavior and Traffic Congestion, in October 2008, analyzing how volatile fuel prices affected traffic and consumer driving habits.
