sitting at home, drinking coffee and watching the local news channels, including the awful traffic that I wasn't in and I started wondering if that kind of video information was available on the internet for other cities, preferably without the endless commercials.
By golly, there is such a site. TrafficLand. Real time traffic cams, by city within state available for your laptop or various handhelds. Free.
Not only that, I'm not the first person to post the link. Someone else had already posted it. It was in the "sticky" section of Roads and Routes.
Like many if not most of us, I rarely look in the "sticky" section of any forum, preferring to do things the hard way.
I think maybe I'll spend some time browsing the "sticky" sections in the other sections of the forum.
Note to Mods:
For obvious reasons, please don't move this post to the "sticky" section.

Thank you for that, it is a nice idea and I may bookmark it but, I will never go back there if there is any choice. The information may be good, but it is not worth putting up with the obnoxious waving, jumping and shaking ads on the page.
Those same cameras can usually be accessed by other means. I'll do that.

Real time traffic info is available in the Houston area at Houston TranStar. It gives you speeds, accidents, construction, etc for the whole area on an easy to understand color map. I always check it before going thru the city.
