Every wonder why you get stuck in traffic everyday? According to the good folks at Waze, it could be because 63% of drivers take the same route to and from work every day. If time is money, then being a little spontaneous on your route could save you butt loads of both. The cool community-based traffic and navigation app mission is to help people outsmart traffic, together. They put together the infographic below to help you navigate driving on the modern road.
Why the Waze app is useful?
After typing in their destination address, users just drive with the app open on their phone to passively contribute traffic and other road data, but they can also take a more active role by sharing road reports on accidents, police traps, or any other hazards along the way, helping to give other users in the area a ‘heads-up’ about what’s to come. Think of it as real-time crowd-sourcing for drivers. Even if you don’t drive often it is still a handy tool to have loaded on your phone.
