View Real-Time Detroit FreewayTraffic on Google-Maps

Today Google Maps now has a new feature for major cities: real-time traffic data. Included in this is Detroit.

Simply go to Google Maps (or click the image to the left to go straight to Detroit), find your destination and click Traffic, and there you have it!
Colors represent the speed ot traffic. The legend is as follows:
* Green: more than 50 miles per hour
* Yellow: 25 – 50 miles per hour
* Red: less than 25 miles per hour
* Gray: no data available

It is obvious that we need more traffic sensors here in the Motor City, but hey, it’s a start!

    This may be a silly question, but who is responsible for the traffic sensors? How do we get more?

    For those of using Google Maps Mobile, we’ve had this feature for awhile. I was surprised to find out it wasn’t available to ‘regular’ online users.
