Live Traffic News

Our live traffic news service covers all the UK's primary motorway routes, and many secondary roads, including a-roads, b-roads and minor carriageways.

Traffic status reports are aggregated directly from the government's Highways Agency, Traffic Scotland, Traffic Wales and Transport for London, ensuring that traffic news and incidents are reliable, timely and accurate.

Each incident includes the full latitude/longitude coordinates, meaning that we can display on our map exactly where an road traffic incident has occured.

Weather Forecast Service

Operating hand-in-hand with our road traffic news is our weather service, which allows motorists and commuters to check the weather in every area of the UK before setting out. With increasingly unpredictable weather in the UK we're getting used to seeing freak weather in all months of the year.

Being aware of the weather on our roads is a great way of staying safe and prepared when out on the great British roads.
