As it relates to Columbus, OH. I've noticed this as well and it's def. accurate. I'm from the Columbus area (HS, college), and though I only go back to visit my parents on weekends/holidays now, there's just not enough traffic in Columbus to report. You should see the list on the DC area on a rainy day, probably 35+ entries.
The term of "traffic disruption" in Columbus terms is nothing vs DC, LA, NYC and other major metro area. For instance, on I-66 here in VA, there's stopped/20mph traffic both ways EVERYDAY and at all hours. This is traffic. No matter how you cut it, the rush hour traffic on SR-315 in Columbus pales in comparison.
BTW, this feature is super useful on interstates in the middle of nowhere, it's very accurate.
Cool - thanks mdosu. I figured that might be the case. I'm certainly not complaining that I live in a place without enough traffic to bother reporting. We have it very easy here. Especially since I moved here from NYC (Manhattan) where there was PLENTY of traffic but I did not yet have this car.
And I really don't use my car much on road trips so it actually hasn't seen much beyond about an hour from the center of town.
