Driving is a personal experience. Traffic information should be too. It must be tailored to the route you're on, at the time you're on it. Usually, you know where you're going, and you know a few ways to get there. If you only knew the best way. Now.
Chet in Chopper 3 can't help you that much. He can tell you what he sees, but unless he's looking at where you're going, at the time you're going there, you're still guessing.
What you really need is data, collected from a myriad of traditional and new technological sources: GPS Probes, weather radar, even Chet himself. And you need that data analyzed and personally provided efficiently and safely to help you decide "which way today?"
