Cars to get jam-buster link.

MOTORISTS will soon be tuning into a new jam-busting service.

A unique traffic information scheme, currently only available to businesses, could be on the market within 18 months.

By paying a fee, drivers will be fed up-to-the-minute travel news, possibly via a radio or phone link, throughout their journey. They will be warned where hold-ups are likely and for how long, as well as being given alternative routes.

Coventry-based Integrated Transport Information Services (ITIS) launched the 24-hour service covering every road in the UK, two years ago.

Our second excerpt from the Jambuster, which lists ways of dodging delays on the M6, is on Page 25.
