They say "a picture is worth a thousand words", and we agree. So just in time to help you deal with mid-winter driving, we are happy to announce the arrival of traffic and road condition cameras on MapQuest.com.
To see the cameras, just click on "Live Traffic" in the upper right portion of your map. You'll see toggles for traffic cameras and traffic conditions (our extensive traffic speed and incident info), which you can show together or separately. Hovering on camera icon will show the location, and clicking on it will bring up the images (hint: zoom in closer if there are a lot of cameras in the area).
Our coverage consists of over 11,000 cameras covering 100+ markets in the US and Canada, and we'll be adding more soon. Update frequencies will vary, but most are updated every couple of minutes or so.
Now you can quickly visualize traffic and weather conditions before your morning commute or heading out on that weekend getaway. It's all part of our mission to help you get there safely and efficiently.

Today, our friends at MapQuest announced a new mobile web experience which has been redesigned from the ground up to take full advantage of the dynamic nature of HTML5. Finding where you are, discovering where to go, and getting directions has never been easier.
We encourage you to learn more about the experience by visiting the MapQuest blog, and, if you're reading this on your mobile browser, which we know many of you are, try it out now by visiting mapquest.com on your Android or iPhone web browser.
And of course, there's nothing wrong if you like apps! The MapQuest apps are pretty great too, and available for free download here for Android and here for iPhone.
