TomTom released its annual Congestion Index in April and, in addition to this announcement, traffic information will now also be made available through TomTom’s Twitter feed on @TomTom_SA, which will include details of exceptional delays around the country.
Through the @TomTom_SA Twitter feed, followers will be informed of delays across the country throughout the day that have been pulled from TomTom Traffic, a live traffic data centre based in Holland that provides up to date information on traffic delays to all TomTom LIVE devices every two minutes.
@TomTom_SA users can access information about certain regions, streets and highways by following the allocated hash tags. A map depicting the traffic jam can be viewed by clicking on the provided bitly link
