If you're one of the folks who've upgraded to Mac OS X Tiger already, check out the Yahoo! Local Traffic Widget for Dashboard.

Amusingly, the first of the traffic advisories shown that screenshot is real--I hit it every day on the way to work.

Perhaps I'll make the leap to Tiger this evening...

This dude (http://ejohn.org/blog/traffic-conditions-data/) has a post on the RSS data that's behind that widget.

I upgraded to Tiger on Friday, it's super cool.
