Re: Irma Preparations in Florida - Tips?


Super helpful: Download Waze on your phone. It's real time traffic info updated by other waze users and there are a LOT of waze users. I found off-interstate routes tonight nearly empty while I-75 came to a standstill up near Gainesville.

WAZE is a great GPS map program. I have had problems trusting it in certain situations but when I didn't, I regretted it. I love the real-time hazards that are shown like stalled cars and on-the-roadway objects. It's gas price feature is nice too as long as people are updating them. I actually use Google maps AND WAZE when I travel for comparisons.
