    Los Angeles Traffic Cam brings live gridlocks to your BlackBerry

    Advertisement



    Via engadgetmobile.com: NBC Los Angeles Traffic Cam, which uses a service from privately held 3rd Dimension. And if that company can't make a go of things in L.A., it should really give up. Starting Tuesday, people with the right phones can download the application, then click and pick from more than 270 cameras aimed at the city's streets and highways to view.

    By "right phones," by the way, we don't mean the iPhone. That version is coming this summer, 3rd Dimension spokesman Rob Manfredo said.

    Some of the cameras will show still pictures and update them often, while others will show live video, Manfredo said. But all have the potential to inform, inspire and enrage.

    CalTrans, the L.A. County MTA and KNBC-TV, which gets a healthy cut of the pre-roll advertising, are all in on the action.

    Almost 40,000 people have downloaded versions for other cities, including New York and Houston.

    I keep getting a connection error on that too, well, as of last night I was.

    Lemme try again this morning.

    BTW, looks as if someone has been squeezing the life out of that 88.

    It would be good to take a lookie at this and similar sites if you're thinking about moving to one of these cities.

    Knowing myself, I hate traffic. I'd rather live in "Po-dunk-ville" with little or no traffic than in a big city.

    I hope they come out with a way to sign up for updates to notify users when the newer cities become available.

    Can someone post the download link for Los Angeles Traffic Cam? I am not receiving the text message from them. And no - I am not blocking SMS's in my firewall. Thanks!
