New Feature on Google Maps

Google Maps now shows traffic information. According to the official blog:

“For more than 30 major U.S. cities, you can now see up-to-date traffic conditions to help you plan your schedule and route.”

Granted, this is probably more helpful for drivers, but some of you might find this helpful.
