Social Traffic Alerting

I spent some time yesterday extending the StokeTraffic platform to include support for eye witness reports provided by users of the service. This now means that the service will include real time eye witness reports of problems and conditions of the roads in and around Stoke on Trent. All users are invited to participate in this extension of the service by using the new feature. If you’re travelling in or around Stoke on Trent and spot a problem then you can alert us by posting a tweet similar to the following:

@stoketraffic rep A500 Extremely busy due to congestion

If your report is accepted it’ll be posted live within a few moments. Please be aware that reports are limited to 100 characters and there are measures in place to prevent abuse to this service. I’m looking for suggestions, features and also of any issues. Get in contact with me here.
