    So did the City of Montreal, not sure why its not mentioned here.

    This is so silly. Why not just open the traffic data to everyone. So we start seeing creative uses off it from startups, individual developers and such. Would be so much better than just allowing the big guys to take the data.

    Does this mean Google maps get more up to date about road closures as well, by extension of ownership?

      I would assume so. Google maps is closely tied to Waze’s input for updating traffic conditions.

    Their pretty up to date for Vancouver. Last week got a notification about a crash on one of the bridges about a half hour before I normally leave for work. I was able to take an alternate one. Was still late for work, but not as late if I hadn’t taken the alternate route.

    So, is it now legal to use our phone during driving?
