Traffic Tweeting

Did you know that some Departments of Transportation are installing automated tweeting scripts to their traffic reports for use on Twitter.com? If you live in North Carolina, check out @NCDOT, and if you’re in the Raleigh area, get your traffic reports from @NCDOT_Triangle and some from @NCDOT_I40.

One of the great things about our information age is the ability to not only get information quickly, but from a variety of sources. Here is an article that was written when NCDOT enabled these features last month.

If you live in another state, run a search on your Department of Transportation and see if they Tweet. Find out, and share in the comments below! Oh, and please don’t tweet and drive.

Still quiet here.sas
