Yahoo! Local Maps BETA : http://maps.yahoo.com/beta/index.php is now including live traffic reports designed to let you know where congestion, construction, and accidents are slowing things down on your commute. (To display traffic reports, just click on the “Live Traffic” checkbox on top of the map next to the “Send to Phone” link. ) Via : http://www.lifehacker.com/software/maps/index.php
