Ideas Every Day #165 – Automatic Traffic Texts from Waze or Google Maps

You know you need to leave around 10am tomorrow for that big event if you think you are going to hit traffic, but you don’t have to leave until 10:30 if you think the roads will be clearer.  The problem is that when you wake up tomorrow and start getting everything ready and running around trying to prep to get out the door on time you totally forget to check the traffic.

Why not set up some “traffic texts” the night before for 9:30, 9:45, and 10:00.  Now, the traffic for your route (previously mapped on Google Maps or Waze – which I guess will be more integrated now) will be texted to you so you don’t even have to think about checking it.

Now you’ll know exactly when you have to leave.   Maybe now you’ll set up an automatic one for every morning so you know just how good or bad your commute will be.
