Mapquest Now Offers Traffic Reports

Do you ever Mapquest a location, jump in your vehicle and start heading the direction the mapping website provided, only to end up stuck in a traffic jam? Well, not anymore. Mapquest is now including traffic reports on their site. Just enter your start and end addresses, click 'Get Directions,' then click the 'live traffic' button in the upper right hand corner of the map that's provided. I just tried it for the Coeur d'Alene area and it didn't show any traffic problems. The traffic report is updated every five minutes on mapquest though so I'll try again in a while. Or maybe around commute time on Highway 95.
