Have you ever wondered not only where traffic incidents are on the freeways, but also what's happening with them -- for example, what time the ambulance got there, if the car that broke down has a tow truck on the way, and so on?
Now there's an app for that: The California Highway Patrol (CHP) meticulously logs every incident that is reported on freeways in California, and even some that aren't on freeways (maybe close to a freeway, but not necessarily on one). Anyone can retrieve that information.
- Two different ways to look at the incidents: as a map of all of them (available on both iPad and iPhone), or as a pull-to-refresh incident list (iPhone only). The list is sortable either by distance or alphabetically by area. It remembers your selection. (iPhone only.)
- Glossary, so you can decipher what the CHP shorthand actually means.
- A "Report" button that not only gives you a button to call 911 (iPhone only), but also tells you roughly where you were when you pressed "Report".
- Universal app -- comes with an iPad version.
