AA aims to speed travel by providing TomTom HD traffic reports

TomTom HD Traffic for AA

Live traffic information from the TomTom HD Traffic system is now available on the AA’s web site, allowing visitors to make more informed decisions about the best routes to take.

TomTom explains that HD Traffic derives its information from multiple data sources, including connected navigation devices, mobile phones, road sensors and real-time incident data. TomTom combines this anonymous information to produce real-time traffic.

Updates are said to be provided every minute, and when we checked we did find reports that had been posted just minutes before – notably of broken-down vehicles that might be causing delays.

You can pop up information about specific points of delay by clicking on the symbol that denotes it. There are also coloured arrows without popups, which simply indicate that an entire stretch of road is suffering from slow-moving or stationary traffic (for instance, the M62 south of Leeds).

According to Steve Wing of the AA: "We are focused on helping drivers prepare for their journeys by using the most up-to-date traffic information."
