Keeping you informed, Southie!

How’s the traffic?  Nobody likes traffic but we love to talk about traffic!  J4Traffic radio app is the perfect marriage of information and commiserating.  J4Traffic not only tells you to avoid 93S but also tells you why to avoid it i.e. tractor trailer fire, three car pile-up, the dreaded HOV lane zipper truck.  Designed to be a listening tool not visual tool, J4Traffic relies on you the commuter to call in to give tips, advice, and report on the traffic.  Your traffic host is Todd Feinburg, a former WRKO radio personality and traffic expert! Check it out!  You can download the app on iTunes.
