Overseas Eye-way is Watching

Often, when visitors ask how long is the drive between Miami and Key West, knowledgeable locals usually reply "3-hours - without traffic".

But how do you know if you are about to face a big delay on US1/Overseas Highway due to traffic?

Do what Big Brother does and check in on road conditions by viewing the 36 cameras set up by the Florida Department of Transportation along US1.   There is a camera every few miles!

The cameras produce a still image that is updated each minute of the day.

Kind of creepy when you think about it.

How do you feel about this?

I would rather have a simple website that had the traffic conditions along US1.
