RightTurn is a new application to help you avoid traffic congestion in London, whether you travel by car, bike or public transport. RightTurn allows you to see TfL disruptions near your current location or along a route, and to look at recent camera feeds where TfL make these available. More importantly, RightTurn cleverly finds recent Tweets about traffic near each disruption, so if someone experiences a disruption and reports it, then you don't have to. We also offer an easy way to report disruptions yourself via Twitter(TM), and encourage you to do so whenever you are in a jam. The more people who report disruptions, the clearer a picture we can give of traffic disruptions, which could be especially useful this summer.
Right Turn is FREE, so please try it and see what you think.
However, RightTurn is still in the beta-phase of development so there may be a few wrinkles that need ironing out. We appreciate any comments you have on its usability and stability. To enable you to report disruptions, you will need to register for a Twitter(TM) account if you haven't got one already.
We strongly advise people not to use mobile devices whilst operating a vehicle, and we do not accept any liability for accidents caused while doing so. Be safe.
