Let us make traffic reports come on demand and on specialty channels on your smart phones. Let us also hope that transport authorities in state and provincial governments do not spend our tax dollars on private fiber or private wireless networks  - they did spend hundreds of millions of dollars in late 80s and early 90s - MobileInfo Editor.
