That's the rallying cry these days heard around the country. Yes, government is useless!...Well, except for when they do things right...LIKE Maryland JUST DID.
A new phone service and website were recently established for traffic and weather reports, incidents, and tourism. Dial 511 on your phone, cell or landline, or http://www.md511.org/ for cameras of traffic, information on road contruction, bridges, back ups, delays and more. You can also sign up for alerts by phone or email if you have a regular commuting route that you would like covered for alerts.

Anyway, check out this new 511 service! It's also available in VA, PA, and DC too.
