Traffic Web Services from Yahoo! enable you to get traffic alert information for a given location. The Traffic RSS feed is a dynamically-generated feed providing the latest traffic information available for the defined area. Provide a zip code to the utility as well as buffer zone (i.e. 10Mi) and the utility will automatically download all the traffic incident points as well as relevant traffic incident descriptions for each point. Use MapInfo Professional’s hotlink to access Yahoo Traffic feeds latest data.
