What are the colored lines representing the Traffic Map?
The colored lines representing traffic conditions on major highways or streets refer to the speed at which one can travel on that road.
- The dreaded red lines on the map mean highway traffic is moving at less than 25 miles / 40.2 km per hour and could indicate an accident or congestion on that route
- Yellow lines on the map indicate that traffic is moving faster, from 25 to 50 miles / 40.2 to 80.46 km per hour
- Green lines on the traffic map indicate zipping along at 50 miles / 80.46 km per hour or more
- If you see grey lines on the map, that indicates that there’s no traffic information available at the time
- The Red-black line on the map indicates extremely slow or stopped traffic
If you’re looking at traffic on city streets, where the speed limits are much lower than on the freeways, the colors take on more relative meaning. In this case, red (or red-black) lines indicate a lot of slow going and general congestion, while yellow color means that the traffic is a little better, but still not the best for your driving directions, and green color means traffic conditions are good.
The green part is the fastest, and dark red is slow traffic. If you see red in most of the route, then avoid it, better to check alternate directions, and take it.
