As you travel this holiday weekend, don't forget about a feature you will only get from WAFB!
You can use your smart phone to access traffic cameras from Lafayette, throughout metro Baton Rouge, and into eastern New Orleans. The same cameras are available on our website, www.wafb.com. If you are stuck in traffic, use your smart phones to access our traffic camera network and see where the problem is!
Also, we are introducing an exclusive new feature to our WAFB Online Traffic Center! You can now go online and register for traffic alerts to be send right to your smart phone. You tell us your typical route to and from work, school, etc. and what time(s) you would like to receive alerts. Whenever there's an accident or slowdown along your route, we will send you an email or text message! It's a feature you'll only get from WAFB.
And, our traffic map shows current travel speeds on major roadways. The company that provides this service for WAFB comes up with travel speeds by using cell phone towers. They can tell how fast drivers with cell phones are moving from one cell phone tower to the next. How cool is that?
