TDOT Releases Traffic App

Trying to find traffic accidents on your morning route through Nashville? There’s now an app for that, just don’t use it while driving.

The Tennessee Department of Transportation has integrated the state’s SmartWay cameras and traffic information network with a smartphone application. The app is now available for download. It locates a driver’s position and pinpoints nearby incidents, road conditions and construction work.

But a TDOT app does not give drivers permission to stare at their smartphone while in route. An agency press release suggests motorists should check the traffic before starting their commute.
