Google maps plus traffic info
Does exactly what it says on the tin.

Not an ideal interface - but built with BBC support - see the BBC backstage pages - an excellent way of making the most of BBC (read, public) resources.

Comments:
I think the only gripe I have about my sites interface is flipping between the national and local views for the traffic events. I found it really difficult to come up with something that was as easy to grasp as a 'back' button so that's what I kindof ended up using. The tragedgy of the back-up '<<' button is that it breaks the concept of the webpage as an application. It was easier to keep all the menu type functionality inside the XML/XSL file. Ideally I would like to render much nicer panel with more of a desktop-app look and feel.
