Copied from another user in the web forum...
I'm announcing the beta test phase for Trafficspeed.org, an 
Openstreetmap based traffic speed information system. This is a 
free-to-use, crowd-based system for handheld devices to provide 
up-to-date traffic speed information of the traffic at your location.
I wasn't happy with existing systems to see traffic jams on my way to 
work, I can take alternate routes to work but there wasn't really a good 
system to help me making a quick decision which route to take. This 
systems does this.

With the end of alpha testing, all features of the current development 
phase are fully enabled.  We've been doing alpha testing in US/Oregon 
for the past couple of months so it's time to open this up to a larger 
audience now. It's working world wide even though I'm measuring latency 
to the US west coast servers to see how servers on other continents need 
to be distributed.

Traffic data is provided by users that use the handheld's GPS to access 
traffic information. Everyone who sees this posting is probably going to 
be the first user in your area so the best way to create a base coverage 
is to use it with a group of friends or coworkers that have a similar 
way to work.
