Wouldn’t it be great if there was a crystal ball you could check before your morning commute to avoid being stuck in traffic? Well there is, and it’s called Waze. Waze connects drivers to one another through a social map platform where users can work together to report traffic jams and accidents. Users who have the app running while they drive passively provide traffic and road data. Wazers can also share road reports instantly and report traffic congestion or accidents. These reports are flagged on the map helping to give users a heads-up of which routes to avoid.
Waze is free to download and available on the Google Play, Apple App Store and Windows Phone stores.
