For a few of our friends over seas, you can now finally view live traffic conditions in Google Maps to help you plan that hectic morning commute. The service is now available in 7 new countries/regions including Belarus, Estonia, Latvia, Mexico, Peru, Romania and South Africa, just to name a few. The service is also being updated with expanded coverage in 19 existing countries like Australia, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, and the UK.
For those of you new to the service, Google’s traffic monitoring gives users real time results and even estimates travel time based on traffic conditions. In congested areas like Los Angeles, I don’t know what I’d do without. Enjoy!
