Mobile Optimised Traffic Search

Right. Using the highways agencies feed I found earlier I've knocked up a searchable UK traffic alerts site at www.davecozens.com/uktraffic

It supports multiple searches, so if you want to search for M5 South and M42 West, just enter: -
M5 South|M42 West
and click the "Search Now" button.

Can be bookmarked with Search params. Might make a widget later...

lol. Not much use to you in Australia.

Nah. Not really. The RSS feeds are provided by the highways agency. All I needed to do was link em up and make em searchable.

I need to drive about 200 miles on my way home and I'd like to see traffic before I hit it. On multiple roads. So I knocked something up to cover my needs.

And then I thinks to myself, somebody else could use this... et voila

All I need now is a way to make it pay for itself if it becomes busy....

Make it pay.

Tell the users it will randomly show pictures of your cat at in-opportune times until they donate a pint.

The first hit is free then make them pay for the widget.

People probably do not like looking at cats when they are navigating.

Anyhow, bed time. Catch you later.
