Q When will you be adding additional cities to your site?
A We are planning to rollout dozens of new cities worldwide in the months ahead.
Currently, we are the largest provider of authorized traffic video in the U.S. and we are in contact
with DoTs nationwide, working to access state and local camera systems to bring the benefits of
TrafficLand.com to as many people as possible.
- Q How do I know which direction the traffic is moving?
ATraffic direction information is typically shown in text below the video image
display. Many of the cameras are not pointed in a fixed direction and may be actively moved by the
respective Department of Transportation, which controls the camera in order to facilitate their
operations. While we try to provide as much information as possible, sometimes a camera is
located between a divided highway making it impossible to provide camera orientation information.
In addition, we are always seeking accurate camera information to integrate into our network
and are continuously adding it to the website.
- Q Why is traffic video not available sometimes?
A Traffic cameras are owned and operated by state and local Departments of
Transportation and may, at times,
experience service disruptions due to technical difficulties or scheduled maintenance. Traffic camera service
disruptions are typically brief.
- Q Why are some cameras not pointed at traffic?
A Traffic cameras are owned and operated by state and local Departments
of Transportation and may, at times, be used to support highway maintenance or traffic incident
response needs. Disruptions of this kind are typically brief and we appreciate your understanding.
We welcome notification about extended camera displays of views that do not show roadways and
they will be forwarded on your behalf to the relevant Department of Transportation.
- Q Are recordings available of the traffic camera video shown on
A TrafficLand does not own or operate the cameras shown on our website
and is not authorized to record any of the video.
- Q What does it cost to use TrafficLand services?
ATrafficLand offers three options in traffic information services.
From the home page users are able to select and monitor video from any camera on the TrafficLand
network for free.
- Q Who do I talk to about adding additional traffic cameras?
ATrafficLand does not currently own, install or maintain any of
the traffic cameras contributing video to the website. The TrafficLand Public
Partners page does list our public Department of Transportation partners,
which own the cameras, and provides a link to their websites. Requests
for new camera locations should be directed to the appropriate jurisdiction’s DOT.
