No notes...

I like the plain, straightforward appearance, but don't like that you cannot click on an incident and read the notes...plus they spelled San Luis Obispo wrong...

I can look at the regular site on my Droid! but it does look like a simpler interface...hope it works well
The regular site (with notes) works VERY well on my HTC Incredible (Android OS)
But, it's nice that they (finally) came out with a mobile end. Surprises me though that with today's app development software nobody has created an app for the smartphones.

There's a great iPhone app for the CHP CAD. Works much better than the website or the new mobile website.

Oh, and hey CHP: It's San LUIS Obispo, not San LOUIS Obispo.

Geesh.

CHP Launches Mobile App for Real-Time Traffic Conditions


Before you start your daily commute, you can now look up what traffic
collisions or roadway hazards to avoid directly on your mobile device.
The California Highway Patrol (CHP) has launched a new mobile
application that provides real-time updates on where officers are
responding along California's roadways. Continuously updated around
the clock, the traffic reports include incident time, location and
whether it involves a collision, traffic hazard or lane obstruction.

“By using this application, motorists will be able to choose an
alternate route to get where they’re going and avoid the congested
area,” said CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow. “This will help reduce
frustration on the part of motorists stuck in traffic and possibly
lessen the number of vehicles moving through the incident area.”

Commissioner Farrow cautioned that the mobile app should only be used
by a driver who is parked or by a passenger in a moving vehicle.
California law prohibits motorists from reading, writing or sending a
text message, or operating a mobile computing device while behind the
wheel of a moving vehicle.

“Before heading out of the office or home, or while you’re waiting
to pick up your child from school or after an appointment, motorists can
get real time traffic information through this portable app,” Farrow
said. “It’s a valuable tool, but it must be used safely.”

The new mobile app is a great way for California motorists, while they
are safely parked, or their passengers while they’re on the road, to
stay updated on road hazards throughout the state, including:
Bakersfield, Barstow, the Bay Area, Bishop, Chico, El Centro, Fresno,
Humboldt, Indio, Los Angeles, Merced, Monterey, Orange County, Redding,
Sacramento, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Luis Obispo, Stockton,
Susanville, Truckee, Ukiah, Ventura and Yreka.

The application works on most devices, including the Android, iPhone,
Blackberry and others. To view the site from a mobile device, please
visit http://m.chp.ca.gov .

If you have twitter you can follow Sac Traffic (sactraffic) on Twitter for the Sacramento area.

If you click the link in the text it will show the log info and a map of the location.

I think other areas also have twitter feeds but i'm not sure what the names are.

Does it specifically say there is an APP or that it just supports being able to be viewed using an Ipad?
