Avoid the traffic hold-ups, using Trafficmaster's 1740 service. Dialling 1740 from your mobile, or 0906 470 1740 from your landline, connects you to Trafficmaster's network of road sensors that monitor miles of motorway and trunk roads. Dial it before you set-off on your journey and you'll know if there's congestion on your route.
Increased congestion that includes millions of parents driving children on the school runs causes average journey times on some roads to triple. Avoid delays by checking the traffic conditions before you start your journey, or set traffic alerts for your regular commute.
